Making music doesn’t have to cost a thing…

The other night, I shared with my friend Keith the petite Kalimba that I have at home. He’s an excellent sax player, and he was amazed by the simplicity and subtle tone of the Kalimba. Seems that the Kalimba’s big uncle is the African instrument called Marimbula, later adopted by musicians in Cuba, the Caribbean and all over the Americas. I found and excellent description at Wikipedia. So all sorts of Kalimbas produce unique and interesting sounds. My Kalimba is made out of a coconut, and I found a very interesting one, down at Africantreasures made out of a sardine box! It’s imported from Burkina Faso, and recycled out of a happy sardine customer.
