Kalimba's origin is on the vast African continent, where it has more than ten different names. This proves how popular it is among the local ethnic groups and tribes. However, outside of Africa, kalimba is well known as well - it ideally complements musical compositions of various genres. This “manual piano” is suitable for both accompaniment and solo parts.
Kalimba is a musical instrument with a very interesting structure. Thin metal tines are fixed above the special resonator, the size and the number of tines affects the tonality, and the possible scale. Additional devices are not required - while playing the instrument is held in the palms or placed on the knees. The kalimba’s amazing sound purity resembles musical bells, but the melodies themselves are surprisingly rich and many-sided.
