Watch an example of melodies that you can play with this Finger Piano



A Kalimba made from materials with a low environmental footprint

A number of poor quality Finger Pianos are sometimes made from reconstituted wood. It is, in reality, to crush sawdust in order to assemble them with chemical glues harmful to health. At Instruments du Monde, all of our wooden Kalimbas are made from raw materials. Musical Instruments are therefore more visually appealing, but most notably, they do not include harmful products in the construction process.



Embark on a musical stay in the middle of the African continent

Traditional musical instrument of the African Shona people, the Sanza or the Kalimba quickly spread throughout Africa several thousand years ago. It is then an Instrument filled with legends which has been listed since 2020 as a cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO. Owning a Sanza turns out to be an exceptional way to prevent this small object from slipping into neglect while taking advantage of the superb sounds interpreted for millennia in Africa.



Take advantage of the vibrations of the Sanza to boost your physical and mental condition

Music therapy is the use of music and instruments in a medical treatment process. This serious method turns out to be regulated by an official federation and accomplished by qualified experts. Typically intervening, for example, in clinics, therapists use the Kalimba which happens to be eminently appropriate for this practice. By acquiring this Instrument, you will also be able to take advantage of its immense soothing potential.
