Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? Well, because of what Dr. Hugh Tracey has developed, It is now a Dream come True! Dr Hugh Tracey is the man who invented the Kalimba. The Kalimba is a musical instrument with its origins in South Africa. Hugh Tracey was an Englishman from Devonshire, England. So how does an Englishman invent a musical instrument from South Africa? In his youth, rather than go on to Cambridge or Oxford for an education, Hugh Tracey decided to ship off to South Africa in the 1920’s to seek his fortune on a family member’s tobacco farm in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).
Hugh became fascinated by the local music culture and was particularly fascinated by a family of instruments known as Mbira – (ehm-BEE-rah). Mbira, also known as ‘Thumb-Piano’ has its origins in Zimbabwe. Of the different instruments in the mbira family, The most sacred and revered instrument is the: Mbira dza Vadzimu – pronounced (ehm-BEE-rah-zah-vahd-ZEE-moo) …Mbira of the Ancestral Spirits
Hugh Tracey modified and re-engineered the Mbira. His brilliant re-engineering of the mbira in the 1960’s became a “New” African Musical Instrument…. “Kalimba”. Although it has become part of our vernacular, the word “Kalimba(TM)” is actually a registered trademark name (Patent Nos. 22,565, 60/3777, 900,796, 68/7040).
