The Sansa-Rimba is a creative fusion of two traditional African musical instruments: the Sansa, often referred to as a thumb-piano, and the Marimba, a xylophone-like instrument featuring 15 notes that ascend outward from the center. This unique combination results in a versatile and compact musical instrument suitable for various settings.
Whether it’s placed in a school playground, along a music trail, or nestled in a care home garden, the Sansa-Rimba finds its place effortlessly. Its design allows for easy playability, making it an excellent choice for individuals looking to explore music and improvisation.
The standard Sansa-Rimba features plain aluminum notes, but for added vibrancy and visual appeal, it is also available with our popular anodized rainbow-colored notes. This customization option not only enhances the instrument’s aesthetics but also adds an element of joy and excitement to the music-making experience.
The Sansa-Rimba serves as an ideal introduction to musical exploration and improvisation, bridging cultural traditions and offering a unique way for people of all ages and backgrounds to connect through the universal language of music.
