About this project

I love Avatar the Last Airbender and wanted to create something that could play the music from it, but live. The instrument used in the main song, Avatar's Love, is a Kalimba. I looked online but did not find any examples of other people creating self playing Kalimbas, so I designed and created my own.

Here is the full video explaining how everything was made.
