Details

A beautifully crafted jempinis wood turtle, with a shell of natural coconut, swims gracefully beneath stainless steel tines in this gorgeous kalimba, or thumb piano, by Balinese artisan Trisna Dewi. Traditionally a musical instrument from Africa, this plucked idiophone produces a hollow tone when the tines are strummed. The word kalimba is a Bantu word which means "little music".

"Another percussion instrument for my Christmas family band!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I already reviewed two more instruments made by Mrs. Dewi, and this one rates 5 stars as the others do. It makes a nice musical noise when you shake it and also is very pretty and nicely painted. I very much like and enjoy the items she makes that can be used to make music; they are a lot of fun.

"Piece of art"

I compare Trisnas piece to a few coconut shell percussion instruments I found with Native Americans. They are all beautiful. This maraca stands out unique.

"Wonderful Gift"

This was a gift for a nephew. He loved it, as did his father. I will definitely consider buying more for future gifts. Both beautifully decorated and an opportunity to learn a musical instrument.

"These are not only decorative but a lot of fun!"

I purchased 3 musical instruments from Trisna Dewi as Christmas presents for 2021. They are really pretty and also make music and are a lot of fun (I tried them all). I may order more so we can have a full band at Christmas. I thank her for her imaginative and fun musical instruments.
