Lovingly handmade in Germany from solid American black cherry wood. Polished with natural oils and waxes. Seventeen metal tines are precision tuned to the notes of the C Major scale (the white keys on a piano). D - B - G - E - C - A - F - D - C - E - G - B - D - F - A - C - E. This allows most of your favourite melodies to be played - a true musical instrument. The intuitive layout makes it easy to sound musical for beginners, but allows advanced players to milk the best out of this compact instrument.

Arrived attractively boxed.

What is a Kalimba?

A Kalimba is a modern version of a Mbira which is an African instrument, traditionally from Zimbabwe. The metal Tines are played with the thumbs and the sound resonates through the wood. It is also known as a "Thumb Piano".

Kalimbas benefit from using modern, western scales so are more accessible to our western ears than the traditional African versions. Many are tuned to simple scales, making them easy to get started with and to make beautiful, relaxing music straight away. They can be used for meditation, yoga and even performance.

The sound can be amplified by laying the Kalimba on a tabletop or the skin of a drum.

A small family business since 1985, Hokema produce beautiful little instruments from high quality materials. Hand made with passion in Germany.
