About Kalimbas

ABOUT KALIMBA THUMB PIANO

The Kalimba is a modern version of the African mbira. The word Kalimba literally means little music. Different country named it differently, the name mbira is more commonly used in Zimbabwe, while the name Kalimba is used in Kenya, the name ikembe is used in Rhuanda, and the name likembe is used in the Congo. Other names are bit less common such as sanza, sansa, marimba, and marimbula. Additionally, there are more generic names of finger harp, gourd piano, and thumb piano that are often used in the west. It is mainly named for using the thumb to move the sheet on the body (mainly made of wood, bamboo, and metal in modern development).

Resonant Box vs Flat Board

Some kalimbas were made on hollow resonant bodies (with sound hole), while some were mounted on a flat board (without any sound hole). The box-mounted kalimba is louder and you can get a great “wah-wah” sound effect by covering and uncovering the sound holes.

Tuning Kalimba

Nowadays you can easily tune your kalimba by using phone application & tuning hammer. Our kalimba comes with instruction booklet and tuning hammer that you can use together with phone application to tune your kalimba.
