Why do we never talk about this?
We must talk about this
well it took me about 2 seconds to reblog this
i don’t know if i love this a little or love this a lot
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!
it’s that thing from Last Airbender that makes the one noise in the songs.
A rock-violin mashup of two absolutely fantastic cover renditions of the opening theme music for the HBO series Game of Thrones.
ONE DAY REMAINING UNTIL THE SEASON 4 PREMIERE!
I imagine the people living inside Wall Rose going about their daily lives then they hear this and they’re like “ohhhh shit’s goin’ down beyond the wall”

"Well, there goes that angry Eren kid again."
Reblogging for that last comment

I was gaping the entire song this is insane
If I had a dollar for every time a musician made me feel like I’ve done nothing with my life, I’d be filthy, FILTHY rich.
