The kalimba is a 1950s commercialization of the mbira, an African music instrument traditional to the Shona people of Zimbabwe. It has a history spanning over a thousand years! Mbira can have more keys, different tunings, and percussive ornaments, but Keylimba mimics the appearance of a 10-key Hugh Tracey kalimba.
Keylimba uses sound recordings from my actual kalimba, which was given to me by my partner Amanda, who Keylimba is dedicated to! ♥
