The earliest Kalimba-style instruments evolved from the mbira family, a family of percussive instruments originating thousands of years ago in Zimbabwe. With deep roots leading back to African culture and musical traditions, the Kalimba has played a variety of different musical roles throughout history.
Today, the Kalimba is not only used to accompany modern instruments on stage and appear on musical albums but also as a form of relaxation and a method to escape the stresses of everyday life. 'Moo' means 'lizard' in Hawaiian to the early Hawaiians, a symbol of spirituality and good fortune. The lizards on the Moo Kalimba are set against the leaves of Monstera Deliciosa a plant found throughout Hawaii. Built with all-solid Okoume wood body, the Luna Moo Lizard 17-Key Kalimba features a laser-etched lizard on monstera design.
