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.

"Brings a smile to all"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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!

"soothing"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Truth: I generally find chimes annoying. However, my daughter loves them so I ordered this for her. It has a lovely sound; especially surprising given its higher pitch. It is well made and beautifully tuned such that even a wind chime curmudgeon like me enjoys it.

"Musical notes on a breezy day added to poolside"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Beautiful design and lovely sounds, this chime will add wonderful ambience to our outdoor living area. Hung on the inside of our front door during the winter months we get to enjoy the sound of the chime any time the door is opened or closed. The musical note progression is carefully and finely tuned. Highly recommend!

Best Uses

  • Wind chime, occasional door chime

I purchased this wind chime for my friends 80th birthday. She is such a wonderful soul & I wanted this gift to be special. It was a wonderful gift for her. Well crafted & the chimes have a very gentle pleasant tinkling sound. Soft & gentle just like her.
