Mbira African musical instrument of the class lamellaphone or plucked reed idiophones. Distributed in Central and southern Africa and on the island of Madagascar.
Its wide popularity is evidenced by the abundance of names, which denoted mbira from different tribes: sansula, zanza, Sanza, mbira, etc.
Mbira is used in traditional ceremonies and professional musicians. It is called "African hand piano"; it's quite a virtuoso instrument, designed to perform melody patterns, however, is quite suitable for playing chords. Mostly used as an accompanying instrument. Large Kalimba give a unique low rumble alive bass rhythms of African music, the small issue is clear, fragile sound, like a music box.
The resonance body is a number of metal plates-the reeds that serve as the source of the sound. When playing (standing, on the move, sitting) Kalimba clamped the palms of the hands, bent at a right angle and held tightly to the sides or keep on the lap, the thumbs and forefingers of both hands suscipiat and released free (upper) ends of the reeds, leading them into a state of vibration.
We make our Kalimba oak Extra grade - different building, small and large, flat and three-dimensional resonator hole. Our kalimah we do exclusive drawings. To protect the wood, we cover our Kalimba with special oil with hard wax, which is eco-friendly(this applies to children's toys). The petals themselves are also handled by the oil and fired.
