The Sanza, a Simple Instrument to Discover

What is very pleasant with the Sanza is that it requires very little training in order to have satisfactory results. In fact, this Musical Instrument happens to be very accessible, because it is simply not possible to make false notes as with, among others, a stringed instrument. In addition, the Instrument happens to be small in size, which guarantees that you can take it everywhere with you inside a bag in order to play it as often as possible during your free time. So you will improve really quickly in learning music.



Soothe yourself with the help of an object without risk to health

The Thumb Piano happens to be a Percussion Instrument which benefits from the advantage of being very rudimentary in its realization. To tell the truth, there is no plastic or synthetic material. You will only find steel and solid wood that has been sanded and then protected with a wax of natural origin. This guarantees that you will end up with a simple, efficient and environmentally friendly Musical Instrument.



Connect with the African universe through the Kalimba

A long traditional musical instrument of the African Shona tribe, the Kalimba has rapidly spread throughout Africa for thousands of years. It is therefore an Instrument loaded with historical stories that has been included since 2020 in the cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO. Having a Kalimba is thus a perfect way to prevent this small object from falling into indifference while benefiting from atypical sounds played for more than 1000 years in Africa.
