What’s Kalimba?

The Kalimba, also known as the Thumb Piano, originates from Africa. Every cultural group has its own version of the Kalimba, with the more common one known as the Mbira.

Its modern name is called the Thumb Piano, and as the name suggests, you use your thumbs to create wonderful melodies from this simple yet uniquely designed instrument. This instrument is “maintenance free”, so you could enjoy it over a long period of time.

Learn how to play the Kalimba at our Music Studio. Play it for fun or amaze your loved ones at your wedding event!

Buying your first Kalimba? Apart from Gecko (heavily promoted by April Yang), there are many other Kalimbas we have tested with good quality. The best way to buy a Kalimba is to test out at a physical store because many online videos (not the one above) have their audio recordings enhanced!
