Hokema Sansula

You can save 15% with the coupon code Sansula15

The Hokema Sansula has an exotic and mystical New Age sound.  It comes in several different tunings and has several instructional books.  These are great instruments to sit on your coffee table as a conversation piece for guests to marvel at, or for incidental music at a yoga studio, or for setting the mood for meditation.  With this particular kalimba, simple patterns can easily produce beautiful sounds. But with a more disciplined approach, the Sansula can expand  to more complex music.
