Kalimba is mainly used for accompaniment. When playing, you must hold the body with both hands and then play with two thumbs. When the thumb is pressed and released, the steel sheet will vibrate and make a sound.
Some carimba will be equipped with some shells or soda bottle caps and other objects, so that when playing, it can emit some similar "squeaking" sounds, or it can be shaken halfway on the table, which will give an echo-like effect. Or the sound of the tambourine metal sheet swaying makes the sound more rich.
The Kalimba is small and easy to carry. When the sunset is over, people will circle and use it to sing or tell stories. Some natives will carry it along the way when they walk long distances. Also, the Kalimba is easy to carry, the sound is clear and clear, similar to the sound of a music box, but more transparent.
