Skeleton

A 4 track afrobeat single (20m 34s) — released June 25th 2012 on Agogo Records

Growing up in Lagos Nigeria, Bukky was spotted practising his first saxophone by the original afro-beat drummer Tony Allen. He was immediately ushered into Tony's newly formed band. Bukky went on
to play with the great Fela Kuti where the seeds of afrobeat were being sown. After sometime in the band and under the influence of Tony Allen, Bukky decided to follow his own journey with his distinct style of jazz and afro-beat.
In 1982, Bukky's path led him to London, where he became one of the forerunners of the acid jazz scene. A young A&R man called Gilles Peterson signed him to the newly formed Acid Jazz label.
After four years of developing their sound, Bukky Leo & Black Egypt have emerged as the most important afro-beat group outside Nigeria. Bukky is still in demand as a world class Saxophonist. He is presently touring with the African Jazz All Stars and Tony Allen's Afro-Beat Big Band. The next chapter is this collaboration with Ben Mitchell. Ben has produced such artists as Terry Callier, Mr Hermano and Dusty Springfield. They met while Ben was producing 'The Rapping With The Gods' album with legendary Brighton DJ Russ Dewbury. The album feat ured Bukky on vocals and saxophone on the track 'Living Am I living'. The result of their meeting is the Afrobeat Visions LP available on Mr Bongo Records.
Bukky Leo has now done a U turn back with his earlier collaborators Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson & master DJ Simbad who have now remixed the Single "Skeleton" taken from the forthcoming Album "ANARCHY" produced by the great dub master Dennis Bovell. This is billed to be a milestone Afrobeat Master piece. Watch this Space!
