2005 – 2011
The marimba band “KKarimba” came from the small town of Kin Kin on the Sunshine Coast in Australia.
Started and led by Linsey Pollak, they began as a group of 24 beginners coming along to weekly workshops. They continued for another 6 years under Linsey’s direction to record an album and become an exciting marimba band performing at various Community events and Festivals. Zaia Kendall took over direction in 2012 and they continued for another 1 1/2 years. Over that period of time Kin Kin was “the hottest hotspot for marimba activity in the world” with over 40 people playing marimba in a town of 400 (that’s 10%)!
