What’s Kalimba?

The Kalimba, also known as the Thumb Piano, originates from Africa. Every cultural group has its own version of the Kalimba, with the more common one known as the Mbira.

Its modern name is called the Thumb Piano, and as the name suggests, you use your thumbs to create wonderful melodies from this simple yet uniquely designed instrument. This instrument is “maintenance free”, so you could enjoy it over a long period of time.
