Timbila are African xylophones that are of special cultural importance to the Chopi people of southern Mozambique. Chopi artisans make timbila slats from the mwenje (“sneezewort”) tree and attach resonant calabash gourds, sealed with bees wax, below. Multi-generational Chopi timbila orchestras may consist of up to thirty timbilas playing at the same time.
