Make Your Own Music With A Coconut Thumb Piano

Here’s another way to relax with coconut: play a coconut thumb piano musical instrument.  The sound is very soothing. Strumming the piano's tines creates  an on-demand wind chime musical sound. It’s so easy to make your own music.  Listen to the beautiful sounds in this video clip.

To me, the melodious tones are more pleasing and wind chime-like when I play slowly. I just tick the tines randomly and the chimes rise through the air. Of course, you can also play songs. Disclosure-I am not a musician.
Coconut thumb pianos and the related kalimba instruments originated in Africa.  Try one and be amazed that you can play your very own harmonious African rhythms.
