I think I’ve just found what I want for Christmas.
A Kalimba – otherwise known as a ‘thumb piano’ – is from Africa and is basically a wooden box with different sized metal keys attached. Think of it as a kind of combination harp guitar piano.
Actually, let’s just stay with ‘thumb piano’.
I received one of these little beauties from my grandfather years ago, and I have never seen someone play it as well as the man in this video. I’m quite impressed.
If you want to listen to more Kalimba music, the URL they provide at the end of the video leads you to the Kalimba Magic site.
