Beautiful Mahogany Structure
The Kalimba is an African thumb piano known as Mbira, Likembe, Sanza, and Finger Piano. It produces mesmerizing sounds from flexible metal strips at various lengths with mahogany wood as a resonance box. In history, tribes play the Kalimba to get rid of evil or pray for rain in a drought season. Nowadays, adults and kids play the Kalimba thumb piano for fun and recreation, making it one of the most loved instruments in many parts of the world.
