Nyanji's mbira consist of small keys which are are firmly tied to a big board of mukawa wood with wire. This takes a very long time and then it is smoked by the smoke of a kitchen hearth so that it shines beautifully. As for the sound that the big mbira emits, there is a beauty that seems to represent the night sky in which stars have been shining for thousands of years.
