Kalimbas are a fun and accessible instrument that people of all ages can enjoy! And with Bondi, they're also highly affordable. The Rainbow Kalimba is perfect for a first (or even second) Kalimba. This lightweight and rugged Kalimba (also known as a thumb piano) has beveled edges to fit snugly and comfortably in hands of all sizes.
You don't have to worry about your thumbs snagging on rough spots on the tines like you do with cheaper Kalimbas. The ore metal tines are smoothly polished and rounded for the most comfortable playing.
Intermediate players will enjoy the full 17 note range. Beginners can narrow that down to 10. Combine that with the guide stickers and you're set up for success on day 1!
The Rainbow Kalimba features a unique watercolour finish with a bamboo like grain. Like all Bondi Kalimbas it comes with a foamcore case that lets you transport your Kalimba anywhere with peace of mind.

The bamboo kalimba is a wonder to play with! I'm a beginner with instruments but even then, I got the hang of playing the kalimba far more quickly than I had anticipated - less than a hour after applying the stickers onto the keys, I could already play a short tune.
The kalimba is very therapeutic to not only play with, but listen to as well, and I'm very glad I took the decision to purchase one!
Not to mention, the service from Ukulelemate is exceptional. From their prompt replies to their generous assistance, I am in awe with the level of friendliness and enthusiasm I was met with when I messaged them about my questions I had regarding my order.
I really appreciate and highly recommend Ukulelemate for their service and the selection of instruments they stock. Thank you so much for everything, I'm super delighted with my purchase and I look forward to buying more products from you again in the near future!
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.
