This is a fun and unique Carved Gourd "Kalimba" Thumb Piano from Africa. This Kalimba is derived from the more complex South African Mbira, and is played by plucking the keys with the thumbs of each hand while holding the gourd body in your palms. The sound created is very melodic and resonant, which is very "African" sounding. Each key is adjustable so you can tune the instrument according to your preferences by sliding the key in or out, and adjusting the tines up and down by adding bees wax underneath each tine to alter the pitch. This would be a great gift or unique to add to your collection.

My kids love having a portable little musical instrument to make music, and the sounds they make are so nice. A kid can figure out how to be obnoxious with anything, but these rarely get annoying.

A bit smaller than expected, but as a gift for a child, that was not a problem. Delightful tone and I know it will be enjoyed.

These Kalimbas are such wonderful gifts! I bought one for my boyfriend and kept one myself. I always take it with me when I go out and it makes for a perfect conversation starter. It works really well and I love how I can adjust the tines easily and it's simple and well made. The shipping was extremely fast and everything arrived in perfect condition. Thank you so much!
