Young guitar lion Jelle Roozenburg and trombone maverick Louk Boudesteijn join forces to create Bonsai Panda. After shaping and cultivating the seeds of their ideas they are now ready to share it with the world.

Roozenburg & Boudesteijn each wrote a dozen compositions – all dripped in blues, charged with jazz and heavily influenced by the great composers of the 20th century (Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Messiaen). Their mutual love for composing and improvisation makes this a truly magical collaboration.

In this sonic adventure they team up with eclectic reedmaster David Kweksilber, saxophonist Jesse Schilderink and the uncompromised beats & sounds of Jimmi Jo Hueting. This group of likeminded souls are all masters of their instrument. But doubling on other instruments gives Bonsai Panda an even wider spectrum of sound and instinctive playfulness.

The Pandas refer to their in-the-moment approach as Short Term Memory Music, which became the title of their 2020 album too.

Meet Bonsai Panda and launch yourself along with us into the great unknown.
