Lee Oskar - a harmonica whiz
Lee Oskar was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1948 and received his first harmonica at the age of six. In his late teens, Oskar traveled to America, where he formed the popular funk band War. Lee's iconic hook in the song "Low Rider" is arguably the most memorable harmonica part in rock history. In 1983, Lee formed Lee Oskar Harmonica, crafting harps suited to common genres of music such as blues, rock, country, reggae, pop, and jazz, as well as less common genres such as Eastern European, Gypsy, Yiddish, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Asian, and European/American folk music.
