“Bukky Leo is the real deal! I’ve loved his playing since he first blew us away on arrival in the UK in the 80s. His Black Egypt projects channels Fela Kuti from the source. Bukky was mentored by Tony Allen and played with Fela – this tribute band swings like Fela’s groups swang. HEAVY Afrobeat grooves and trance like afro-funk work outs.” Jez Nelson — Jazz FM “Bukky Leo is the missing link between Afrobeat and Acid Jazz, having played with Fela and been signed to the iconic Acid Jazz label.” Gerry Lighsight — Mambista “Bukky Leo & Black Egypt come correct with new versions of Fela classics recorded live at London’s Jazz Cafe.” Tony Allen — Blue Note Records
