  • Two 9 note kalimbas mounted together onto one block
  • The Twin is 30cm (12”) long and is fitted with two identically tuned sets of tines so the instrument can be played by either one or two persons simultaneously.
  • Resonance of the tones is picked up by the wooden corpus and can be felt by both players
  • Interactive instruments for two persons
  • The advanced kalimba player can play a wide range of other scales simply by retuning individual tone
  • tuned to A-minor



Playing Solo

Hold the Twin in both hands so that each thumb can reach one of set of tines. Now you can play the nine tones on both sides of the instrument, creating a full sound reach in overtones thanks to the identical tuning on both sides. When one tine is plucked it resonates with its twin on the other side.

For the advanced kalimba player the Twin offers the potential of a wider range of scales by simply retuning individual tines. 

Playing Duo 

The driving motive for designing the Twin was our desire to create an instrument which could offer a shared experience of sound between therapist and patient, couples, family members, and friends.

As the wooden body resonates, it is physically felt by both partners, and the identical tuning of the two sets of tines guarantees harmonious tone sequences and sounds.

The kalimba stays in tune when being played but the tuning can be changed if desired. Tones on the two sides of the instrument which differ from but nevertheless harmonize with each other are thus also possible. 

Add a Bag to protect your instrument:

    • Bag reinforced with fiberglass
    • Fully padded on the inside
    • Adjustable shoulder-strap
    • Protect your sensual perfectly
    • Lightweight and durable

Hokema B9 Kalimba Aria

I was pleased with customer service & by the work ethic that this company has. This is my first kalimba that I have ever owned. It is easy to make pretty little melodies & pairs well with the chime of the same key, but admittedly the kalimba sounds louder & sweeter when held & played so it works better when these instruments are played by 2 people. Overall I was pleased with my purchase.

Fun and super easy to play

I love how easy it is to just pick up and play. My anxiety lessened until I found myself in a meditative space. It happens every time I pick it up. Ended up purchasing a few more for friends. We play together and none of us has had lessons!
