Sargam to switch off

If you feel like there are too many tabs open in your brain and you're not able to switch off, singer Kaushiki Chakraborty has a treat for you. In a two-minute sargam track that is both soothing and peppy, the vocalist teams up with sitarist Purbayan Chatterjee and percussionists Yogesh Samsi and V Selvaganesh. We don't know if it's her voice or the beats, but Sargam Surge had us humming for sure.

As easy as it gets

It's a mahogany wooden box with shiny staggered metal tines. Every pluck of your fingernails produces notes like chimes rustling in the wind. A 30-second video was all it took for me to fall in love and buy the compact African instrument, kalimba. Despite being a beginner, this finger piano is super easy to learn; it doesn't nag your neighbours and lets you play soft melodies until wee hours. An absolute win, no?
