The mbira is made of 22 to 28 metal keys attached to a hardwood soundboard called the gwariva, usually placed inside a large gourd to amplify the sound. The thumbs pluck downward on the keys. The forefinger plucks upward from beneath the keys. Traditionally, the keys were made from iron ore smelted from rocks.
