Leslie Mandoki’s supergroup is on a mission to change the world, one star-studded gig at a time
How does a Hungarian music producer manage to attract a host of top talent from rock, pop and fusion to form an ever-changing supergroup? Leslie Mandoki has been doing just that for 25 years with ManDoki Soulmates, playing with a long list of musicians that includes Ian Anderson, Al Di Meola, Chaka Khan and Jack Bruce. Ahead of his first ever London show, Mandoki, who fled Communist Hungary in the 1970s, looks back on two and a half decades of making his rock dreams come true.
