Day 299 - Kalimbas

Isaac has made some beautiful kalimbas (African thumb pianos) which he will try to sell on consignment. He put many hours of work into each one and they make a wonderful rhythmic sound that would add an earthy texture to a music performance. They remind me a little of the Balinese gamalan.


  1. Wow, Pam, these are beautiful. I'm sure they will be appreciated by lovers of interesting musical instruments.

  2. Thanks Tanis, it's a bit of a specialised market - but I'm sure there is a demand out there.
