Having musical talent is a gift to be grateful for, but even without skill, you can easily play music using kolintang, a pitched percussion instrument from North Sulawesi’s Minahasa.
Besides being easy, it is also cheap because you can practice without tools by simulating your fingers as a kolintang instrument.
You can learn about it in Maimo Kumolintang’s book or through video tutorials.
Music can not only be enjoyed by the senses of hearing, but the movement of music playing can be seen and counted on the fingers. After simulating playing kolintang with your fingers, you will be interested in trying it on a real instrument.
