UTOPIA series kalimba is made in france by hand, in our workshop. Each kalimba is a little piece of art and is unique!
This kalimba has the particularity of having two rows of 17 blades, the tones on the bottom row (equivalent to the white keys of the piano) and the semitones on the top row (equivalent to the black keys of the piano) which will allow you to play a wide variety of music without having you worrying about Key limitations or tuning changes like in 1 row basic kalimbas.
Free yourself and your musical possibilities!

 

 *****

This kalimba has a clear and round sound. It is very light-weight

The french spruce wood is harvested from ecological and sustainable forests, worked by hand, then covered with a resin that makes the illusion of a tropical island shore.

Other color: Kalimba "LAS COLORADAS" with pink water!


*****

Each piece of wood being unique, with its small differences in density, we choose the tuning that sounds best after several tests for each kalimba.  We advise you to keep this tuning in the future.
