Mbra – A folk instrument native to Africa. Sometimes it is called “Thumb Piano”, “Sanza” or “Kalimba”. They are usually home-made and consist of metal teeth attached to a piece of wood that are plucked out with your thumbs. They are mostly small, with a handful of notes.
Array Instruments, created by Bill Wesley and Patrick Hadley, took the concept of this ancient African idiophone to a whole new level, not only in terms of instrument design, but also in terms of sound purity and pitch range.
Array Mbira is not a toy, it is a very advanced musical instrument, created in accordance with high requirements.
