After several arrests he managed to escape communism and the iron curtain through a tunnel. Mandoki decided to stay in Germany and became a successful musician. Over the years he collected countless platinum album awards and became one of Europe’s most influential music producer with a major recording studio complex. He´s delivering to the entertainment industry every and each year an outstanding production reaching the top. Back in 1975 as a refugee he was asked by an officer in the German refugee camp about his future plans. Leslie replayed that his goal was to play music with his great musical “idols” and named Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull, Jack Bruce from Cream and also the young and ambitious Al di Meola. He wasn´t taken serious by the officer back then, but his musical vision was filed with correct German precision at the refugee camp. In 1992, Ian Anderson, Jack Bruce and Al Di Meola became founding members of Leslie Mandoki’s band project Man Doki Soulmates – which is now 23 years old! For more than 2 decades Leslie Mandoki unites legendary icons of anglo-american rock and jazz-rock in his band “Soulmates”.
