Xime Monzon

Ximena Monzón is a harmonica player and singer from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She began taking her first harmonica lessons in mid 2006, with Pablo Brotzman and Adrián Jiménez. In 2009 Gabriel Gratzer (Director of the School of Blues) invited her to participate in assemblies of School Blues (Collegium Musicum).

She played as a guest with many local musicians and did numerous recordings. Since 2011 Ximena is working on her solo project, along with Santiago Esposito / Federico Verteramo on guitar, Mauro Bonamico on bass and Rodrigo Benbassat / German Pedraza on drums.

She plays all across Argentina in clubs and festivals. She has also been traveling a lot outside her country, at Blues festivals; Mexico, Brazil and Chile, along with well known Blues artists like Lurrie Bell, Vino Louden, Mike Wheeler, Flàvio Guimarães and Alamo Leal among others.
She also does workshops and teaches harmonica.

Her influences are the great masters of blues harmonica such as: Walter Horton, Sam Myers, Little Walter, Sonny Boy I and II, Billy Branch, Lazy Lester, Slim Harpo, James Cotton, Junior Wells, Carey Bell and many others.

In 2014 she recorded a CD together with other Argentinian harmonica players: “Cuatro Armónicas Argentinas” (Four harps players). In 2016, she recorded her first solo album “My harp, my soul” edited by Chico Blues Records (Brazil).

This is what she says about her SEYDEL harmonicas:
“I'm a musician and I like what I’m doing – I’m doing everything from my heart – and the SEYDEL harmonicas for me are the perfect choice to express myself musically – they play just like my second voice!”
