Jake Roberts first started playing marimba fifteen years ago in a class at Kutsinhira Cultural Arts Center. Several years later, Jake and his classmates founded Hokoyo Marimba, which has performed in Oregon and elsewhere since 2006. In 2007 Hokoyo released its first album, Chipembere, and in 2010 they released a second, Hokoyo Live. Jake has also studied mbira with Cosmas Magaya, Ambuya Beauler Dyoko, and Musekiwa Chingodza, and has taught classes at Kutsinhira for several years. Aside from marimba and mbira, he enjoys playing and writing music in a variety of genres. Jake is currently studying computer engineering at the University of Washington.
