Kalimba. 20 Number-Coded African Songs for Absolute Beginners

Helen Winter
pubblicato da Helen Winter

Prezzo online:

This book was created with the intention of assisting absolute beginners, regardless of whether they are children or adults, in learning to play in a straightforward and uncomplicated manner, without requiring any knowledge of reading sheet music. For beginners, playing by following musical notes can be challenging, while it is comparatively easier to follow number-coded circles with corresponding note numbers.

In the contemporary context, kalimbas typically feature engraved letters and numbers that represent the notes. The dots positioned above the numbers indicate the next octave. The majority of songs in this songbook utilize eight notes and can be played on a 10 or 17-key kalimba.

In African musical traditions, singing is often intertwined with dancing, placing greater emphasis on rhythms rather than melody or harmony. African songs, characterized by their distinct rhythmic patterns, serve as excellent material for musicians of various backgrounds.

The primary purpose of this book is not mere reproduction, but to actively engage everyone, as music, by its very definition, involves the expression of emotional states through the use of sounds with specific frequencies and rhythms.

While an indication of a song's country of origin is provided, it should be understood that many traditional cultures transcend current national borders. The language in which a song is sung holds more significance and can be utilized in multiple countries. Most songs included in this book have been simplified to accommodate beginners.

Since African music often involves improvisation and variation, it is recommended to utilize this sheet music as a guide rather than a rigid framework. The most crucial aspect is to actively listen to and replicate the recordings accessible through the provided QR code.
