About Radim Zenkl
Music performer, composer and instructor. Originally from the Czech Republic, Radim resides in California since 1989. His style features bluegrass, jazz, flamenco, classical, Eastern European traditional and original music. Radim is the US Mandolin Champion and remains at the cutting edge of the mandolin’s future. He has invented a masterful technique, the “Zenkl style,” in which a single mandolin sounds like two. According to David Grisman: “Zenkl has re-invented the mandolin in several different ways.” Besides collaborating with the top musicians of the acoustic music scene he has recorded nine solo CDs (released on Acoustic Disc, Shanachie and Ventana) and has appeared on more than sixty other recordings. Radim’s worldwide performing and teaching credentials include guest appearances at prestigious music institutions such as the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland and teaching several times at the Mandolin Symposium. He has been teaching online private lessons for the past ten years. His instructional DVD “Mandolin Primer” was released on Homespun. www.zenkl.com
