Kalimba

$32.00

7 key Marimba with colourful design painting.
Kalimba, also known as thumb piano, Mbira Njari and Zanzu, is an African melodic resonator featuring tuneable metal prongs. Their history extends back thousands of years and they have proven popular across many African cultures.
The pitch of the prongs can be tuned by moving them towards or away from the bridge.
When a tine is plucked, the adjacent tines also vibrate, increasing the harmonic complexity of an individual note in an interesting and pleasant way.
