The kalimba is an African musical instrument consisting of a wooden board (often collated with a resonator) with attached staggered metal tines, played by holding the instrument in the hands and plucking the tines with the thumbs. Just need to use two thumbs to make a sound. The Kalimba Instrument is produced and classified as part of the lamellaphone family, and part of the idiophone/Mbira family of musical instruments.

The Secret Why Anyone Can Play Kalimba in 5 Minutes
1. Fool-proof Numbered Musical Notations
Kalimba Finger Piano uses a system of numbered musical notations, meaning anyone can learn to play in minutes—even with zero prior musical education or experience.
Even better, this numbers-based approach makes even advanced songs accessible, so you can start playing what you love right away.
And the way the numbers work is simple.
Here’s an example: The Numbers "1" to "7" on the Kalimba Instrument represent the musical notes of C, D, E, F, G, A, B or "do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si, ti.”
Now the first part of the popular tune "Old MacDonald Had A Farm" now becomes: 1 1 1 1, 6 6 6, 3 3 2 2 1 - "Old Mac-don-ald had a farm, E, I, E, I O.”
Just follow the numbers, and you have a tune. Easy!
