The Coolest Instrument You've Probably Never Heard Of

SaReGaMa - Kalimba solo for Lotus

This is a retuned "Hugh Tracey African Tuned Karimba" with custom buzzers.

The karimba is similar to the mbira from Zimbabwe. It has 17 tines organized in two rows, but at first glance the organization isn't logical. However, as you begin to learn how to play this instrument, you will discover its inherent logic, which especially lends itself to a traditional African sound.
