Hokema Sansula Kalimba


The Kalimba is a musical instrument with metal tines that you play by plucking them with your thumbs. It's commonly found in various shapes and versions across Africa. The sound of the tines is made louder in different ways, such as through a resonator or a hollow object like a calabash, or even just a piece of solid wood.

The Sensual is an innovative twist on the Kalimba. Instead of directly amplifying the tine vibrations, the sound is first stored in a wooden block and then transferred to a resonating membrane. This results in a much longer and sustained sound compared to other methods of amplification.
