    Post Kalimba/Mbira/Likembe

    I have just bought a kalimba (my main instrument is the horn) and I have twitched a bit with it to look at its resources and playing technique. I'm actually quite impressed. I have not bought the real traditional mbira made out of spatula-like rows of tines, but a modern Hugh Tracey one. The real one is fairly difficult to play and way more expensive (up to 350$ sometimes).
    Have any of you heard of or played this instrument?

    I've often thought of buying an Array mbira. Really a fantastic instrument.
