Oh Zoots! Bad, naugthty Zoots... If you've never seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail, two things:
Back to Zoots, this electronic Kalimba then. Zoots from Brandnewnoise has made a version for techno and house label, Ghostly International, appropriately known as Ghostly Zoots. This isn't your average Kalimba (you might know it is a thumb piano). Oh no. You're looking at a seriously cool, loopable instrument. Thumb Piano 2.0.
The original Zoot was released back in 2015 and the makers collaboration with Ghostly International looks likely to present Zoots to a whole new audience.
Here's the story behind the original Zoots Kalimba:
"A friend living in Cape Town, South Africa brought back this crazy little thing called a Kalimba, an instrument made of rake tines, a piece of wood, and a bottle cap. Cool, right? Well, as brandnewnoise would have it, sitting around the shop one day we thought to ourselves, "let's make a kalimba!" And so we introduce to you, Zoots. Guaranteed sonic wizardry, beautiful melodies, and non-stop direct flights to Awesomeville."
