Kalimbas, mbiras, karimbas, finger pianos...all are names for the same African percussion instrument from the Lamellophone instrument family. The kalimba is comprised of a hollow resonator, which vary from handmade boxes to calabash gourds, and metal tins.

These rustic mbiras are created around a hollow wooden box with burned designs by artisans in Kenya. The box is held with both hands, and the recycled metal tines fitted with tin can buzzers are plucked to create an unmistakable African sound.

Available in three sizes.
