An Instrument finally easy to access for anyone without musical knowledge

It is no coincidence that the Kalimba happens to be called Thumb Piano . Each of the Instrument’s metal blades corresponds to a single Musical note as in a standard Piano. This will guarantee you, when you press on these blades, to generate precisely the desired note without the slightest risk of making an error. Also, the Kailmba proves to be a gift that is suitable for both adults and children who love its easy use and which ensures that they can compose and play songs very quickly.



Buy yourself a solid wood Musical Instrument that respects the environment

Several Sanzas (another name for the Kalimba) of mediocre quality are sometimes made from reconstituted wood. It is, in fact, to compress shavings in order to unite them using chemical glues harmful to health. At Instruments du Monde, all of our wooden Thumb Pianos are made from raw components. The Musical Instruments are therefore more visually pleasing, but more particularly, they do not include toxic products in their construction process.



Enjoy a new facet of African culture

Did you know that almost all the archaeological evidence of the Kalimba proves that this Musical Instrument comes from sub-Saharan Africa? This small object was used particularly in Zimbabwe for festive events or to connect with the dead. When you have a Sanza in your hands, it is sure that you will be inspired by this Instrument heavy with African heritage and magic.




Access the closed club of Mbira instrumentalists who use it from a care perspective

Music therapy consists of the use of music and instruments in a healing approach. This serious method turns out to be regulated by an official federation and exercised by qualified practitioners. Typically participating, for example, in residences for the elderly, the therapists rely on the Mbira which proves to be eminently appropriate for this practice. By purchasing this Instrument, you too can take advantage of its tremendous soothing potential.
