Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

This week I found out about an instrument that I had never heard of before. It's called a kalimba. I heard about it through Cheapskate Blethering.

A kalimba is a thumb piano - an African instrument

The musician I'm going to feature is Wambali Mkandawire. He is a Malawian jazz musician. He was born in the Congo to Malawian parents from the Mlowe village in the north and then later lived in Mzuzu.

 His music is really calming. He uses a kalimba. It's nothing like I've ever posted.

Couldn't really follow the lyrics of course but I liked the instrumental very much.

I haven't heard of this instrument before, but I am always intrigued with the sounds from African music!
