Easy handling and suitable for everyone

It is no coincidence that the Kalimba is called Finger Piano. Each of the metal slats of the Instrument matches a single note of Music as in the keyboard of a classical Piano. Which will guarantee you, when you vibrate these reeds, to produce exactly the desired note without the slightest chance of going wrong. In addition, the Thumb Piano is a gift that is suitable for both adults and children who love its easy use and which guarantees them, very quickly, to arrange and perform pieces.



Discover an original facet of African civilization

The Kalimba is a small Musical Instrument of the idiophone family whose first vestiges date back more than 3 millennia all over the West African coast. He was nicknamed Mbira or Sanza and played a major role in multiple African populations in the Zambezi Valley. Through its pleasant, atypical and unique sounds, you will escape with certainty in the exploration of African musical culture.



Join the closed club of Kalimba players who benefit from a care perspective

The latest scientific analyzes are absolutely categorical on this subject, Music has an infinitely positive impact on people’s brains. It acts on the nerve cells in such a way as to tone them up and therefore has significant therapeutic virtues. The Finger Piano , on the other hand, gives off soft and pure tones which increases its ability to relax its user. With such a Musical Instrument at your disposal, you will systematically enjoy all the benefits offered by Music.



Relax with the help of an object without risk to health

Many poor quality Thumb Pianos sometimes turn out to be made from chipboard. It is, in fact, to compact the shavings in order to group them with chemical glues harmful to health. At Instruments du Monde, all of our wooden Sanzas are produced from raw materials. The Instruments then turn out to be more visually pleasing but above all, they do not include dangerous compounds in their production process.
