As a professional percussionist with 4 CDs on iTunes, I can say that this app is pretty amazing while being free on top of it. I've read the bad reveiws below, sad as they are written by people who say they know nothing about a kalimba.....shocking.. My advice is to go buy a real one for $75+. For to have this soothing instrument with me at all times is nothing short of amazing.
