Kalimba

My sister is an excellent present finder and at Christmas and Birthdays it is always intriguing to see what she has found.  This year a Kalimba made in Burkina Faso, although I think she did not travel there to buy it!  A quick search and I discovered my version is somewhat on the basic end of the Kalimba scale and made out of a sardine can but lovingly hand crafted.  It is a genuine delight to to have.  A deluxe Kalimba can be viewed here and the sound of my one can be heard below, I can obviously not play it and it is a little tricky to get a nice tone out of it.
