    I had never heard of it either, except for I've seen a much smaller toy-like version. Not too many folks play it well but I found the tone of it delightful and this particular piece was charming...

From a Wikipedia article:
The Array mbira is a hand-crafted modern musical instrument with a unique harp or bell-like sound. It is made in the United States by its inventor Bill Wesley and manufactured by Wesley with Patrick Hadley in San Diego, California, United States. It is a radical redesign of the African mbira and is part of the lamellaphone family.
