The perfect instrument for someone who is "all thumbs!"

The kalimba is a traditional instrument that originated in African thousands of years ago. Also called a thumb piano or an mbira, this diminutive musical instrument is lightweight and portable, making it easy to take along anywhere.

Atop each kalimba are eight numbered keys made of tempered steel that have been cut and tuned by hand. Easy to play, simply hold the kalimba in your hands and pluck the tines with alternating thumbs. 

Our beautiful handcrafted thumb pianos are available in either the pentatonic (5 note) or diatonic (7 note) scale.

Pentatonic instruments are used in Waldorf education for accompanying stories and puppet plays. The open-ended and harmonious tones calm children and add have a dream-like quality that's never loud or jolting.

Instruction book included.
