"Kalimba Solo for Lotus" is one of the most viewed kalimba videos to date. Lotus is my daughter's name. When she was just a few months old, I used to play her improvised songs on Kalimba before bedtime. Eventually, I recorded a composition based on these songs and uploaded it to YouTube under the title "Kalimba Solo for Lotus".

How to play chords

Use the Saregama lotus kalimba tuto to play accors with delicacy

The thumb piano, which we usually have in our hands, generally has left and right scales. When we need to play a full octave, we have to play the left and right thumbs in turn, which is different from the piano keyboard. But it's very easy to play chords on the thumb.

For example, a C chord consists of three notes: 1, 3 and 5. On the Kalimba, the C, E and G keys are adjacent to each other. Guitar players know that different chords have different fingerings. In the thumb, most of the basic chords are on the same side, making them easier to read.

When playing and singing with the thumb piano, three or more notes can be played simultaneously, just like guitar arpeggios or fast strings. It's also possible to play broken chords at a certain tempo, for example by playing each note in succession, just like guitar chords.
