What is a Kalimba?

Kalimbas are plucking instruments which you simply play with your thumbs. Therefore they are also called thumb pianos.

The “Mbira” or “Sansa” which are the African instruments for what we now know as a Kalimba, originated from a simple halved calabash, a turtle shell or half a coconut as a resonance body.
