Kalimba is a musical instrument originally from Africa. It is now also called as thumb piano. The sound it produces when playing is so relaxing to the mind and body. Unlike some musical instruments a Kalimba is so light that you can carry/ bring to anywhere.(Order link:https://kalimba.aliexpress.com) Hluru Kalimba is made out of natural wood with innovative design and smooth finish which makes it gentle to your hands.
Can I learn without the basics of music?
Basically the Kalimba is a very simple musical instrument even a child can play with. All that matters is you know a bit of do re mi. Included in the package is a set of stickers to help in playing the Kalimba. Playing the Kalimba is simply plucking the tines/keys with your finger nails.
This is my first time ever ordering a kalimba and I got to say it's so beautiful and amazing. The only thing is as you can see, it looks absolutely nothing like the picture. it's definitely a hluru kalimba but that's about it. the color nor the shape is what I was expecting in the mail, funny thing is the only thing accurate to what's advertised is the tassle and all the accessories it says it comes with. So this is why I will give it 4 stars since of course I was expecting the kalimba to look different. But on the upside it sounds wonderful, all tines are fully resonating and I'm enjoying my time learning it. I'm still a little sad that it looks completely different, I'm not sure why that is, but other than that it's a quality instrument.
Came today and I’ve tinkered on it. Then I found a few youtube videos and aha I could make a tune!! Did some scales too!
