The full eleven notes are: G - A - E - D - C - G - D - G - F# - B - A.

What is a Sansula?

A Sansula is an innovative new instrument design from German Company HOKEMA, based on a Kalimba (which itself is a modern version of an Africa Mbira). Metal Tines are played with the thumbs and the sound resonates through the whole body of the instrument, resulting in a fuller and longer lasting tone than a normal Kalimba. A Kalimba is also known as a "Thumb Piano".

Kalimba and Sansulas 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 name "Sansula" is derived from "Sansa", which is another name for a type of "Mbira".

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

"Query: I just wanted to say how fantastic these wind chimes are. I have wanted to get one of the larger sets for a few months and have even dreamed about them in my sleep. Unfortunately having saved enough I missed out on the set I wanted to get but I did however buy anther set that I also thought was beautiful. I continue to now save up for the big set and also another set that i have viewed on your site, now having found where i can get them from. This is just to solely say absolutely brilliant! The sound and craftsmanship is outstanding. I totally appreciate what goes into making a set of these having engineering training and some musical background. Thank you again "
