TROUBADOUR TOUR  (2010)

Radim Zenkl & Jaroslav Samson Lenk. Jaroslav is a Czech award winning singer songwriter. Their collaboration started about 15 years ago.

Besides their contemporary repertoire, they prepared a collection of Renaissance and Celtic tunes for this project. See video from a live show.

The instruments feature Paraguayan harp, sitar, koto, balalaika, bouzouki, cymbalom, hurdy gurdy and others. The music is entirely free improvisation, a soulful exchange between two musicians at a moment in time.

Czech It Out CD cover
CZECH IT OUT (1994)

A musical palette of eight Zenkl's originals along with three Czech and Slovak traditional pieces arranged for solo mandolin, mandocello and mandolin banjo. Zenkl's own version of the "duo-style" technique allows him to sound like two mandolins simultaneously on several cuts. Other techniques feature slide mandolin, finger picking and hammering with a pencil.

Galactic Mandolin CD cover
GALACTIC MANDOLIN (1992)

This recording is possibly the first album of original mandolin solos ever made. The mandolin is tuned differently for each of the 13 compositions. The first piece is written in regular tuning (ee-aa-dd-gg). In each piece that follows, every other single string is tuned down a half tone (eeb-aab-ddb-ggb, ed-ag-dc-gf, etc.), thereby using all intervals from unison to octave. 

Mandolin Parade CS cover
MANDOLIN PARADE (1989)

A true parade of ten different mandolin family instruments and several music genres, covering bluegrass, blues, new age, Czech traditional, classical, rock, and other. Six of the twelve pieces are Zenkl's originals. The arrangements featuring solos, duets, trios and a quartet are overdubbed mostly by Zenkl, with guest musicians contributing the second mandolin, harpsichord, piano, bass and drums.

Radim is also featured on these recordings:
