June 27-30 — Pacific Lutheran University — Tacoma, WA

MyLinda King

MyLinda played with Boka Marimba for ten years, starting in 1989. During that time she studied with Dumi Maraire, Ephat Mujuru, MaiChi Nemarundwe and Chris Berry. She also played keyboards in the band, Kubatana, with MaiChi in 1992-93. In 1995 she began teaching marimba in her home studio and soon after that began teaching children in various Portland schools. In 2009 and 2010 she brought all the school groups together, Zimfest-style, for a one day festival called Mhembero: A Celebration of Youth Marimba. She often offers summer marimba camps to school-aged children. MyLinda is also a regular teacher at the NW Women's Music Camp. In her spare time she enjoys making hosho and teaching people how to play them.
