There is nothing more meaningful than playing an instrument that embodies a rich history, made from excellent sounding tonal woods, a creative design, and can bring you peace of mind. Kalimbas evolved from the mbira family, a family of percussive instruments originating thousands of years ago in Zimbabwe. Today, the Kalimba is not only used to accompany modern instruments on stage and appear on musical albums but also as a form of relaxation and a method to escape the stresses of everyday life. The Luna Honu 17 Key Kalimba is what happens when modern design meets musical history! Built with an all-solid Koa wood body and decorated with two stripes of flamed maple binding, Honu is the Hawaiian word for turtle. Laser-etched around the sound hole of the Kalimba, you can see a sea turtle swimming below the steel tines. This is the perfect instrument and design to take with you on all your tropical adventures! Keep your Kalimba in-tune to the Key of C with the tuning hammer and instruction booklet to use as a reference. Hard shell case included with a polishing cloth and an extra soft carrying bag. Whether youre relaxing on a beach, taking a break at work, or jamming with the band around a bon fire, make sure you have your little hand piano by your side. Join the Luna Tribe!
