A Sanza with elements with a low environmental footprint

A multitude of poor quality Kalimbas happen to be made from reconstituted wood from time to time. It is, in fact, to compress shavings to unite them using chemical glues harmful to health. At Instruments du Monde, all of our wooden Sanzas or Mbiras happen to be made from raw materials. Musical Instruments are therefore more visually pleasing, but more importantly, they do not incorporate toxic components into their construction methods.
