Distract yourself with an object without risk to health
The Finger Piano happens to be a Percussion Instrument which has the advantage of being very elementary in its design. In truth, there is no plastic or chemical compound there. You will only find steel and raw wood that has been sanded and then protected with a wax of natural origin. This allows you to have a simple, efficient and nature-friendly Musical Instrument.

Were you aware that every time you play a note with the Sanza , you will feel the vibrations spreading through your body? This is one of the immense strengths of this Instrument. All the players take pleasure in feeling with their hands all the sounds caused. Therefore, the Sanza is perfect for meditation or as part of music therapy. It will guarantee you to achieve general calm and a moment of tranquility while listening to music.
Savor a new facet of African culture
A historically folk musical instrument of the African Shona people, the Thumb Piano quickly spread throughout Africa several hundred years ago. It is therefore an instrument steeped in history which has been registered since 2020 as a cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO. Acquiring a Thumb Piano is therefore an excellent way to prevent this small object from slipping into neglect while benefiting from remarkable sounds interpreted for more than 1000 years in Africa.
