favorite this post African Gourd Kalimba Mbira Thumb Piano - $25 (Lowell) hide this posting unhide

This Kalimba Mbira thumb piano was purchased in Tanzania, where it was hand-crafted by local artisans.

The sound chamber is made from a gourd, with a wooden plate attached to the surface, which holds the metal keys that you play with your thumb.

It's in excellent condition, although the metal keys are not in tune with one another. It's more for decorative and conversational purposes.

Measures: 7" Long x 4" Wide x 3" Deep
