The Kalimba is a traditional African metal keyed instrument that creates a mellow, almost island sound. During festivals, weddings, and other major events the kalimba will accompany the singer for a unforgettable sound. The kalimba is made of wood, and there are ten metal keys attached on the top. The metal keys are often times made of old spoon handles, bicycle spokes, or spring wire that was cut and hammered to the desired shape. Approx. 3.5" x 7" long. Made in Kenya.
