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.
Firstly, this instrument is handmade with high-quality mahogany. Due to its solid wood structure, the sound of this kalimba is well balanced and crystal clear. Secondly, the keys are made with selected ore steel bars which give the tines high strength and durability.
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!
All the Kalimba is already pre-tuned in C, therefore you can play it right away when you received the order.
