A kalimba, or thumb piano, is a lesser-known percussion instrument which produces layers of rhythmic tones and soothing, relaxing sounds.
Now is a chance for many people around the world to do some home-schooling. Kids are loving the time and parental attention combined with the freedom of being home instead of at school. What a great time to do kalimba with them!
Create beautifully soulful music with the crisp and angelic sound that comes from the Kalimba.
This is an opportunity for precious one-on-one time with your kids... or with your parents! This is a time to make something beautiful together.
The Kalimba is a modern-day version of an African instrument known as an mbira. Two kalimbas that go great together, and they are perfect for performing duets!
This is a great instrument for children, for adults who may be overwhelmed by more complicated music instruments, and for people who just want a taste of Africa without having to work too hard.
It helps you see and understand music in a completely different way from any other instrument. The unique note layout of the kalimba requires that you understand it physically more than mentally. You learn what sort of thumb dancing you need to do to accomplish a certain song. In a totally unique way, playing kalimba really puts your consciousness into your body.
