Mary Had a Little Lamb is another popular kalimba song. Although this song may sound like a traditional Scottish ballad it was actually written by James Thornton, an English composer in 1881. After being covered by Blind Blake, an American singer, and Bert Ambrose, an English bandleader, it became very popular in the 20th Century. In 1961, Tony Sheridan, the Beatles’ singer, recorded a Beatles version. The song is one of the easiest kalimba songs to play.
“Sad Banger” is another popular song. This song is a classic rock song, but it’s not easy to learn. However, you will fall in love with this versatile instrument. Even though the kalimba’s difficult tone and complicated chord structure can make even the most experienced kalimba player feel like a perfect fit, the long chorus can make even the most inexperienced player feel like they belong.
