The ReiLimba is inspired by a Sami instrument called “Bongolaika”.
The ReiLimba consists of three bass-strings attached to a reindeer-antler that can be tuned. The reindeer-scull itself is attached to a resonance-box.
The ReiLimba is one of two instruments that was developed by Hansen (in cooperation with Hurdal musikk og instrument service) as part of her MA-project, “Hvor er ur”.
The ReiLimba will for the first time appear in “Gumpe”, written by Jørgen Mortensen. The piece has its premiere in 2019.
