Recycled Nescafe Can African Kalimba

Swahili Modern


  • Handmade in Burkina Faso, the base of this kalimba is a Nescafe coffee can. Metal tins fitted with tin can buzzers are plucked to create a distinctive African sound.

    Measures approximately 5"L x 3"W x 2"T. Size may vary slightly.

  • An artisan co-op of young men in Burkina Faso, West Africa, create hand-crafted kalimbas from gourds and recycled materials such as coffee tins. Frequently the artisans are also musicians themselves, and they take great care in producing instruments of exceptional quality and beauty.
