ILIMBA is a Lamellophone type from GoGo ethnic group of central east Africa; central Tanzania. ILIMBA is another respectfully borrowed term I use because of significant similarity to original ILIMBA.
Consisting of a large box with metal buzzers on the Keys and Sympathetic Keys in the middle of the Key Board.
