The Prime Lesson:
The Kalimba Comes From Africa
I recently got this message in my Facebook feed:
“Hey man, I just wanted to say thank you for your research regarding the kalimba. I came across it randomly and thought it originated in Asia, but boy was I wrong! Thank you for showing us where its true roots lie.”
Yes, so many kalimbas are made in China that the African roots of the instrument are becoming obscured. I have a really cool video I made that explains some of the important parts of the kalimba’s story in Africa.
Part of the story of the kalimba’s birth, evolution, and migration in Africa.
