The mbira (also called kalimba or sanza) is an instrument which is often used by the griots (African storytellers). It consists of a resonant box (calabash, can, tortoise shell) and recycled metallic blades mounted on a bridge. In Bantu mythology, the sanza is the auxiliary to the Creator of the World; each blade represents a phase of the Creation.
