The Makalu Dimpled Singing Bowl rings with clear, higher-pitched vibrations. The bowl's thick round sides create tones with a long sustain. These bronze bowls have a distinct pitch and harmonize well when played with other bowls. This bowl is simple to make sing, making it great for beginners seeking an invigorating sound.
The name Makalu is derived from a name for the Hindu God Shiva that translates to “Big Black.” The mountain has another name in the local dialect - Kumba karna, which means The Giant. This beautiful and impressive massive is the fifth highest mountain in the world at 8,485 metres (27,838 ft). The isolated peak whose spectacular shape is a four-sided pyramid straddles the border of Nepal and Tibet.
