Embark on a musical tour in the heart of the African continent

The Kalimba turns out to be a small percussion musical instrument whose first traces date back more than 3000 years everywhere in the West African coastal zone. He was designated as Mbira or Sanza and exercised a significant place within a multitude of African peoples of the Zambezi valley. By using its delicate, rare and unique sounds, you will surely escape into the exploration of African musical culture.


Easy handling that suits everyone

The least that can be said about Mbira is that it requires terribly little practice in order to achieve rewarding results. In truth, this Musical Instrument turns out to be really easy to access, because it is simply impossible to make false notes as with, among others, a stringed instrument. Also, the Instrument turns out to be of reduced size which allows you to take it everywhere with you, inside a bag, in order to play it as often as possible during your free time. In this way, you will improve very easily in learning music.

A Finger Piano made from materials with low environmental impact

Several poor quality Mbiras turn out to be occasionally constructed from reconstituted wood. It is, in fact, to compact chips in order to group them with synthetic glues dangerous for health. At Instruments du Monde, all of our wooden Sanzas are constructed from raw components. Musical Instruments turn out to be therefore more visually pleasing, but more importantly, they don’t put toxic compounds into manufacturing operations.
