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 is made of Padauk, an African wonderful red wood. 
Its sound is very cristalline, with brillant high notes, rich sound and great sustain.
*****

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.
