No limits! No borders! Just dance!

We mix ska and pop with a wide variety of genres like afrobeat, cumbia, salsa, reggae and gypsy. We want people to dance to the moment with music to think about afterwards. We try to shake up the world and bring a little vibrancy and happiness to it!

The band

We founded Leoparte in 2015. Seven guys, three different cities, one love for music. Inspired by bands such as The Cat Empire, Manu Chao and Mano Negra we recorded a demo and started playing gigs all around the country. We gained experience and new influences along the way.

Our fanbase expanded as we played festivals, bars and many other venues, bringing positive vibes and danceable grooves wherever we went. Winning an important band contest in 2016 brought us more attention and more gigs! Another milestone was our first gig across the border in Germany in 2017.

All this brought us to where we are today. 2018 is all about our new EP ’Masks’. This release is a big step forward regarding quality and diversity! With the new songs we continue to bring positive vibes and danceable grooves wherever we go!

The members

With a unique style and recognizable voice, Neil is the face of the band. With words he gives value to the music. Boris is the mastermind in the band. He plays bass guitar, is the primary songwriter and the creative backbone.

As a drummer, Hugo keeps the band’s heart beating, both musically and organizationally. Jan gives the band its guts with his daring organ grooves and inimitable piano riffs. Guitarist Max brings the power, delivering energetic punches when needed, but also capable of subtle movements and gentle touches.

Last, but definitely not least: we present our indispensable brass players, consisting of Leo on the low end and Florian who brings the treble. Without their essential sound, the band would have no soul and vigor.

Leoparte consists of individual characters that work together with a single mind, body and soul. We strive to make the world a better place with music, dancing along the way!
