Marijn van der Zaag, born 02-09-1987 in Delft, The Netherlands, comes from a family in which hardly anyone plays any kind of music.
Instrumental evolvement|At the age of 13 he started African/Brazilian percussion lessons, because his stepfather (divorced from Marijn’s mother now) played djembé. After five years he picked up his stepfather’s guitar as well and teached himself to play all kinds of songs. When he moved to Nijmegen to start a study information science one more year later, the acoustic guitar became the main instrument he played, because his father stopped paying for djembé lessons. Meanwhile all this, Marijn practiced every now and then on a drum kit individually, but began drumming seriously at the end of 2008, when his band needed a drummer.
Bands|With the African/Brazilian percussion group Afrodite, Marijn performed at parties and other events in Delft, Pijnacker and some other places.|In 5th to 6th grade, when he was 16-18, he played in the alternative/blues band Scissor Salad as percussionist. He mainly played djembé, Brazilian snare drum, bells and some guitar.|The first years of study Marijn played guitar and sang solo, performing in a bar in Nijmegen incidentally. In 2008 he started the band ‘De Tengere Mietjes’ (tengere mietjes) with two (study) friends, who also played guitar. One of them, Ely, started playing bass instead and Marijn chose the drums. This group has found a keyboard player and two singers to play along these days.|While some Tengere Mietjes members are temporarily in other countries, Marijn started playing (still on drums) with his girlfriend and some other friends at the end of 2009.
Marijn also has performed occasionally as duo with Lucas Rozenboom (from Scissor Salad), Roy Loos and Anneloes Verhulst (from De Tengere Mietjes).
