Underneath the Mango Tree

In honor of being in Poland this week, I thought I’d share a sort of worldly song. I actually have no idea where I found this one, but I absolutely love listening to this to relax. It gives such a nice, peaceful feeling as you hear it.

Sadly, I don’t think the singer has released anything other than his album called Saved, although that can be fun to listen to. Many of the songs are more upbeat than this, including the album version of this song. In this version, Tinashe does a beautiful job playing the mbira, or thumb piano, which you can learn more about here.

I love how he starts by playing the simple theme of the song and then gives it a slightly more upbeat rhythm as he starts to sing. If you’re looking for something different and calming, take a listen to Tinashe’s “Zambezi”.

What music do you like to relax to? What calms you when you need it?
