Kalimba with a digital print of Iveta Utakytė painting “Parade”. The print is on both sides of an instrument. Tuned in pentatonic.
Kalimba has a very soft and bright sound. Strips are made from spring steel.
Kalimba is a perfect instrument for everyone, as you do not need to be musician to play it. All the sounds are in tune with each other, so all that is needed – to allow your fingers move freely and enjoy the music. Kalimba is often being used in music therapy or meditation. Also playing this instrument is recommended for pregnant women, because placed on the stomach an instrument emits not only sound, but also vibration while playing and is very useful for an early intellectual development of the baby.
If you were looking for a special gift (for a friend or for yourself) – you just found it!
