Remembering Leonard Dembo

Leonard Dembo would have been 60 this year, but death snatched the legendary artist when he was only 37, on April 9, 1996, leaving a rich discography.

That man was talented. He taught me a lot about music. I worked with him from 1988 until his death in 1996. I was the youngest in the band when I joined Barura Express. He treated me like his younger brother. I was with him most of the time. We ate together. We slept together. He always gave me advice about music.
