Kalimba - Musical instrument

Original to Africa the kalimba is also called the "thumb piano." Originally this intuitive instrument accompanies the singing and speaking of African griots and storytellers.

Composed of a wooden sounding board, this musical instrument is topped by metal slats that vibrate with each press of the thumbs. This small instrument is very easy to play by children and emits a soft, melodious and magical sound.

There is a vast choice of kalimba, but as a musical instrument participating in the musical awakening of children, our kalimbas of the brands Djeco or Moulin Roty most often have eight notes.
