This member of our family of musical instruments is very special - it is magic on its own and also when played with the hang and D drone flute (we had the sansula tuned to suit both instruments) and the Raagini (digital tanpura).
The sansula is an African kalimba that has been mounted on a drum head by some inspired and creative souls in Germany. It creates a whole new sound which is very much in line with the sort of music we love to create, and that speaks to the silence between the sounds.
Lots more information and sound samples of the sansula can be found at the 'Kalimba Magic Shop'.
It receives lovely compliments from appreciative listeners, much as we anticipated after the effect it has had on us!
"If music be the food of love, play on."
