Kalimba with beautiful design & ethereal sound

The kalimba is modelled after the ancient African musical instrument called mbira. Whereas the mbira was originated in central and southern Africa around 1000BC. The varying styles of kalimba and mbira have endured for thousands of years and had numerous layouts, designs, and tunings.

As a result, this instrument produces a warm ethereal sound that feels "like nature in a box". And most importantly, the experience of playing the kalimba will truly help you to relax and unwind. This article talks about why the kalimba is an amazing instrument for everyone!

Need a little help on choosing the right kalimba? Here is a little kalimba buyer's guide made just for you.

High-end material:

Hluru kalimba has exquisite workmanship with the most interesting designs. Handmade with high-quality solid flame maple wood. The unique curls or strips in the big-leaf maple wood make it visually appealing and desired by instrument builders. In addition to its stunning visual appeal, maple is also a highly regarded tonewood. The instrument made of maple wood produces a unique sound because this tonewood has amazing strength and high density. Maple wood kalimba produces a beautiful bright and shimmering sound. 

In addition, keys are made of ore steel tines that provide a bright and clear timbre. The key touch of Hluru kalimba is a bit softer compared to other brands, therefore it is more comfortable to play and suitable for beginners.


There is no need for any musical background! Because all the notes are engraved on the keys. 

To play, simply hold the instrument between the palms, then use your thumbs to pluck the keys. After that, choose an easy kalimba tab from your learning booklet or online, then pluck the corresponding tine according to the numbers on the tab. As a result, you will have a beautiful melody in no time!
