I wasted about an hour of my life playing on this

It’s a music game where you create a bunch of basic organisms clustered around a radar center.  I’m pretty amazed.  It’s very weird and very creative…and I keep finding new little ways to tweak it.  Love it.

Edit: It even lets you create and share your own sequences.  This is one of several I made.

How to write good.

Probably not relevant for a lot of you, but hilarious to me.

THIS INSTRUMENT IS CALLED THE KALIMBA. THIS IS FATE.

holy shit

this is the best kalimba playing i’ve ever seen EVER

I HAD NO IDEA WHAT A KALIMBA LOOKED LIKE UNTIL JUST THIS SECOND IM BLOWN AWAY

I had one of these growing up and I was such shit at it I literally have never heard one used for anything other than plonky, labored renditions of ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ in my living room. This is gorgeous.

I feel that things like this are posted so often with no historical information and I think that’s pretty damaging even if it’s unintentional. It just contributes to the erasure of non-western societies and their cultures.
The Kalimba is an African instrument common throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and it’s also known as the “sansa” and “mbira”. It was typically played while walking by traveling “griots” who keep the history of the tribe or village and for entertainment purposese. And get this: the wood or bamboo-tiled instruments were first invented 3000 years ago! And the metal-tiled ones appeared in the Zambezi River Valley 1,300 years ago. There’s so much history behind this instrument and it’s an injustice to the those whose culture it originates from to post about it and never once mention them. Anyway this is just tiny bit of the history I felt like adding from the wiki page, and the entire thing it very interesting so I’d encourage you to read it all!

Thank you for providing some background to such a lovely instrument.

Gorgeous!  I’ve seen simpler versions of these for sale, but this one is really well designed and balanced. Virtuosic playing as well.  I’ll have to keep an eye out for one of these.
