Romanian translation:mic pian african
Explanation:
It is only this definition that I've found in an American dictionary :

"An African musical instrument,such as kalimba or mbira, that has a small sound box fitted with a row of tuned tabs that are plucked with the thumbs."

I think you should either consult a specialist(musician)for the exact equivalent, or simply describe it a little, based upon this definition.
