AMI Mission Statement
Our Mission

In the 1930's Hugh Tracey brought the Kalimba to the rest of the world as part of his mission to give African Music the global status it deserves. Today there are many immitators, but we continue to be acclaimed as setting the standard for this companionable and uniquely African instrument. We still manufacture a large range of Kalimbas, but have continued to adopt African technology in innovative ways. Our extensive range of xylophones uses indigenous woods and African production techniques. Our marimbas have a reputation for combining great sound with robust strength, and their steel folding frames facilitate easy transportation. We are committed to the ideals that inspired Hugh Tracey: to make music (especially African Music) happen. We are also dedicated to more than quality and manufacturing excellence, we include concepts and principles of African music making into our corporate structure.
