An Mbira in ecological and responsible materials

Some poor quality Thumb Pianos often turn out to be made from reconstituted wood. It is, indeed, to pack chips in order to assemble them with chemical glues dangerous for health. At Instruments du Monde, all of our wooden Sanzas happen to be made from raw materials. The Instruments are therefore visually prettier, but above all, they do not introduce dangerous components into the manufacturing process.

Did you know that every time you press a key with the Finger Piano , you will feel the vibrations spreading through your body? This is one of the great assets of this Musical Instrument. Each player takes pleasure in perceiving with their palms all the sounds caused. In this way, the Finger Piano is great for meditation or considered through music therapy. It will allow you to achieve perfect calm and a moment of tranquility while listening to music.



Learn a new facet of African culture

A still common musical instrument of the African Shona tribe, the Sanza quickly spread throughout the African continent for several thousand years. It is thus an Instrument full of history which has been included since 2020 in the cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO. Having a Sanza turns out to be an extraordinary way to prevent this small object from falling into indifference while benefiting from atypical sounds played for more than 1000 years in Africa.

It is no coincidence that the Kalimba is titled Thumb Piano. Each metal blade of the Instrument corresponds to a single note of Music as with a classic Piano.
