For fans of new acoustic and new age music alike - as well as admirers of virtuosity and innovation - Acoustic Disc presents Galactic Mandolin, original solo instrumental compositions by Radim Zenkl, a gifted young musician from Czechoslovakia. Having pursued an unlikely career as a mandolin player in Eastern Europe, Radim moved to America in 1989 to be closer to the source of his musical influences. It didn't take long for Radim to make his mark on the acoustic music scene in California, where he now lives.

The versatile artist uses techniques ranging from flatpicking, fingerpicking, alternate tunings, to slide work and solos with two and three moving parts. He plays everything from his native Czech music to bluegrass, classical, jazz, pop, middle eastern, standard American fiddle tunes -- all with intensity and feeling. "David offered me to record for his new Acoustic Disc label so, in 1992 I did a CD called Galactic Mandolin - original solo mandolin music with each piece in a different tuning." “ Ginny Hollon
