1997 Man Doki – People In Room No8

People In Room No8 is an album by Man Doki, released in 1997.

Leslie Mándoki (Mándoki László) (born January 7, 1953 in Budapest, Hungary) is a Hungarian musician who performed for the music group Dschinghis Khan and as a solo artist.

Mándoki studied drums and percussion at the musical conservatory of Budapest in the early 1970s. At the same time he was a band leader for the local jazz-rock group JAM, citing groups like Cream and Jethro Tull as his influence.

In July 1975, Mándoki, along with Gábor Csupó and others, fled from Hungary to Munich, Germany to avoid prosecution by the communist government for being a member of the student opposition.
His solo projects are released under the name Man Doki
