Details

The kalimba, or African thumb piano, is easy to play and pleasing to the ear. Crafted from hollow coconut shell and painted in bright colors, it depicts a sea turtle on the front. The kalimba produces an array of varied tones when the stainless steel "leaves" are plucked with the thumb. This petite and portable instrument is perfect for reproducing elements and tones of tribal music with ease, presented by Trisna Dewi.

"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.

"Brings a smile to all"

Joyous turtle is so aptly named! Brings a smile to all. I love the originality and the artistry of the painted surface. So creative! PLUS it makes music! A unique keepsake, so evocative of Bali and Java for the armchair traveller! PLUS i LOVED the special touches in Trisnas unique gift wrapping. So thoughtful and what a delight! The ribbon is a fantastical handcrafted creature made of some natural grass-like fiber. Thank you, Trisna!
