Jens Bunge was born on September 24, 1963. Inspired by Stevie Wonder’s hit song “Isn’t She Lovely”, he picked up the chromatic harmonica at the age of 18. Listening to the recordings of Toots Thielemans, he found his passion for jazz and soon began to perform with local jazz groups and big bands, receiving more and more attention for his melodic improvisation style.
Besides concerts with his own bands, he performed with the German Jazz Youth Orchestra “BuJazzO” (conducted by Peter Herbolzheimer), and with jazz greats such as Art Farmer, Barbara Dennerlein, Emil Mangelsdorff, Bill Ramsey, Patricia Barber, and Leni Andrade.
Guitarist, composer and arranger Xiong has worked with the likes of Harvey Malaiholo, Kris Dayanti, and a much sought-after percussionist from Brazil, Valtinho Anastacio.
