Product overview

  • Sansa – regional term for the African mbira or thumb piano
  • Rimba – from Marimba; xylophone of African origin
  • The Sansa-Rimba is a bright, stimulating and colourful teaching and music resource and would be a great addition as school playground equipment
  • This outdoor musical instrument is a clever blend of two African instruments; the Sansa (thumb-piano) and a Marimba (xylophone)
  • Using the pentatonic scale and spanning two octaves (C4-C6), the 15 notes of the Sansa-Rimba are arranged as a traditional thumb-piano with the scale ascending from the centre outwards
  • The Sansa-Rimba can be built with individual notes of Aluminium, Ipe (hardwood) or GRP (type of fibreglass). Each of these materials gives a distinct sound when played.
  • There are no wires or strings as the notes are individually and securely attached to the resonators for maximum vibration with incredible tones and resonance
  • The resonators are available in a number of different colours
  • The instrument can be installed into the ground, surface mounted or fixed to the wall
  • The Sansa-Rimba is easy to play and a perfect introduction to musical exploration and improvisation
  • 75cm length
  • A pair of beaters is included, tethered with a nylon coated steel cable which can be fixed next to the chimes. If you prefer loose beaters, let us know
