Hiroki 19 tone Dminor ash kalimba – only one of a kind


Hiroki, meaning “Resonant Forest” in Japanese, perfectly embodies its name. This ash wood kalimba boasts a powerful and sacred sound, as if an entire forest were playing at once. Tuned to D minor, it resonates with depth, its lower tones intense and lingering, while the kalimba vibrates beautifully in the hands.

Its highs are clear and crystal pure. Crafted from ash flat-cut wood, Kalimba Hiroki produces a deep meditative sound with pronounced vibration. Characterized by intense deep tones alongside clear, pure highs, Hiroki is the perfect companion for yoga practice, meditation, therapy, or sound massage. The wood’s resonant quality allows for a sensitive feel of its vibrations, whether playing in the hands or placing it on different parts of the body.

Hiroki is tuned in the diatonic D minor scale, suitable for intuitive playing. Measuring 17 x 14 cm, it fits comfortably in adult hands, boasting 19 tones arranged in a double-row layout, convenient even for beginners or those with larger fingers.

Once in a few months, our grinding of wood suddenly holds our breath. This happens when Marek sees a place on a dusty board where a special kalimba is born. We mark it and place the form in such a way that its beauty can excel the most in the future. This is based on the life story of a tree which has been reflected on the structure and color of the wood. We are strongly influenced by the Tatra nature in which we create and live. Every day we are captivated by mountain peaks, the power of wind, the acuity of the first sunbeam and the intensity of morning dew. We wish that this powerful experience we feel through nature every day was written into every single instrument that goes through our hands. That’s why we make our kalimbas manually, from drying itself to the last surface trimming and finishes. We gradually collect these beauties all year round. After four years of natural drying, the wood is acclimatized in the workshop for a few more months to make it as stable as possible. When it’s ready, we start production. The surprise comes with the very conclusion, when only one of the three kalimbas plays to meet our expectations. Subsequently, we look for the tuning that fits the instrument the most. You can celebrate the result of our work together with us. We introduce you a special Tatra edition of designer kalimbas.

Sound tuning

Maybe you remember the “do re mi fa so la si do” exercise from the music classes at your elementary school. It’s an indication of the seven tones in a diatonic scale. If you’ve just hummed this in your mind, you sang one octave. Ordinary, we tune these kalimbas to G major. This kalimba is tuned in special way – in diatonic D minor tuning (D, E, F, G, A, B♭, C).
