    About the Kalimba / Nyunga nyunga
    Kalimba instruments are thumb pianos classified as African lamellophones. The 15-key kalimba that we are making at Juma Instruments originates from African tribes living in the countries Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Kalimba is only one of the names used for this instrument, Nyunga nyunga, Nyonga nyonga and Karimba are several language varieties that refer to this 15-key African instrument. Karimba translates to “little wooden xylophone” and Nyunga nyunga translates to “something little that causes fun trouble”. The 15-key kalimba is usually tuned in a major key, but you can also get minor and custom variations. For players wanting more keys to play we have the 19-key kalimba. We can make different types of kalimba and custom tunings on request... Read more about Kalimba

    About the Mbira
    22 to 24-key mbira instruments are African lamellophones. The mbira originates from the Shona people from Zimbabwe. The Shona people consist of several tribes and population groups such as the Zezuru, Kore’kore, Ndao who have their own dialects and also mbira variations. Differences can be found in variations of tuning, layout and playing style of the mbira. The traditional name for the 22-key mbira that we are making at Juma Instruments is mbira dza Vadzimu. This type of mbira originates from the Zezuru tribe and mbira dza Vadzimu means ‘Voice of the ancestors’. At Kalimba Shop we feature two types of mbira dza Vadzimu, the Nyamaropa mbira dza vadzimu, tuned in major with mixolydian scale (flat 7th) and the Mavembe mbira dza vadzimu, tuned in a minor key. We can make different types of mbira and custom tunings on request...Read more about Mbira dza Vadzimu

Mbira Review

I love the sound and character of the instrument. It's so beautiful. My only small complaint is that some of the keys are a little loose and I believe it to be in Fminor not Gminor. Other than that I've been enjoying this every day since I got it!

Admin response:
We have taken steps to better protect instruments from rough shipping handling. Information about what to do with out of tune or loose keys see: http://www.kalimbashop.com/content/11-mbira-maintenance-tuning
