If you're looking for a unique and eco-friendly Kalimba, then I've got good news: you found it!
The Bondi Bamboo Kalimba combines sustainable bamboo construction with the build and sound quality you expect from Bondi. Featuring 17 highly polished and smooth ore metal tines, your thumbs will glide effortlessly without snags.
Kalimbas, similar to Mbiras with one less row of tines, are cherished for their glassy bell-like timbre. The bamboo body gives you a little more sound projection and a unique tone. The smooth natural finish combined with the beveled edges makes this extremely comfortable to hold and play.
This Kalimba is finished with a stunning pearl inlay soundhole rosette.

We bought 2 Kalimbas and they are both very good.
I love the quality and sound.
The cases they come in are robust and sturdy.
Very well made and they have that high quality feel to them.
A great overall product. Thanks.
Gave this to my 13yr old son, he loves it! He has already started reading the Kalimba tabs and is making some beautiful music in such a short time. Even if you don't know what your doing, it still sounds pretty.
This Kalimba also comes really nicely boxed in a protective carry case. Highly recommend.
Bought a Bondi Kalimba for my mate's birthday back in London. The lovely fellas in the shop wrote out a card and sent it from Australia. My mate works in a stressful environment as a film editor. When it arrived and he opened the parcel, he was genuinely surprised at how beautiful it was and how pleasurable it was to play. He plans to watch a few YouTube vids and will take it on holiday with him. He was genuinely chuffed. Makes a great gift A+
Excellent, very quick service. Very happy with product.
Opening the Kalimba case was special - a beautiful product nestled in a rich red interior of its protective bag. The shell detail surrounding the sound hole is beautiful. Tone was lovely, mellow, very relaxing. Loving the learning experience - converting my piano fingers to kalimba thumbs!
The sound this instrument is beautiful
Yes! The Kalimba is one of the easiest instruments to learn. Unlike the piano which has many keys and complex scales to learn, the basics of the kalimba can be learnt really quickly. It's an instrument that can be learnt without prior musical experience. On the other hand, someone with musical experience may well be playing simple melodies within minutes of picking it up. The beauty of this instrument is that it sounds beautiful, no matter who is playing it.
Yes it is. Also known as a mbira or thumb piano, the Kalimba orginated in Africa around 3000 years ago. At the time African tribes were in need of a portable instrument to play while walking. Whilst we may not walk and play the Kalimba these days, the portability of this instrument is a big reason for its popularity.
