German folk-prog band ‘Bayon’ was founded in 1971 in the former GDR. The nucleus of the band consists of the two multi-instrumentalist and founding members Christoph Theusner (Guitar, flute, piano, percussion ) and Cambodian musician Sonny Thet (Cello, guitar, percussion) who studied classical music in Weimar and developed an unique style of combining the Khmer-Pentatonic with elements of Classic, Jazz and Rock. Lead by Theusner and Thet the band played with changing members a mixture of Folk, Classic, Jazz and Rock. Between 1977 and 1982 ‘Bayon’ released four records for the East-German ‘Amiga’ label. Even so Theusner and Thet concentrated since the 80’s on solo projects ‘Bayon’ continues to exist and released several new records.
