Kalimba is an ancient African instrument that has been woven into modern culture thanks to the Englishman Hugh Tracey, who in 1954 founded the International Library of African Music company and began to produce calimas for export to Europe and America.

The instrument resembling a music box fascinated the Englishman not only with the sound but also with the ease of mastering: in a few minutes an interesting rhythm could be created, in a few hours an unusual musical figure. It is not necessary to play by notes or chords – most often on the Kalimba they play purely intuitively, by intuition.
