That’s what i feel after playing kalimba for the first time.”Said April,”But almost no one knew it in China, and it’s rough no matter in appearance or in tone by that time.The styles were not as many as by now,and tones were not pleasant too.” Although the connection of April and kalimba was all made by chance ,it has became her beloved.
