Hand-Painted Calabash Gourd Kalimba

  • This handmade African kalimba is carved from a calabash gourd by artisans in Senegal. When played with the thumbs, the kalimba's metal tines and hollow interior produce a beautiful, resonating sound.

    The back of each gourd is hand-painted, and the designs give the instruments a decorative aesthetic when hung on the wall. Measures 6-7"D x 3.5"T. Designs will vary.

  • An artisan co-op of young men in Senegal 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.
