Kalimbatronique

The Kalimbatronique is a modified eight note western kalimba that can function as a kalimba, a MIDI keyboard/controller or both. The idea behind this hybrid instrument is to augment the natural acoustic sound of the kalimba with electronic sounds and live sound processing (via the use of exaggerated traditional playing gestures) for solo or group performance.
