Thumb Piano

Tanzania

East African Thumb Piano (Kalimba). Tanzania

This unusual East African thumb piano (Kalimba) consists of a wooden base which has been carved into two parts: a back section attached to a hollow main body made from a single piece of wood. The thumb piano’s metal keys are still fully intact. The style of this thumb piano is an early example of the box-based form found throughout Tanzania in the twentieth-century.

Mounted on a custom-made stand, this East African thumb piano is wonderfully reminiscent of a Cubist-style sculpture. 

Estimated Period: Early 20th Century
