Lee Oscar

A Danish harmonica player, notable for his contributions to the sound of the rock/funk fusion group War which he formed with Eric Burdon, and for his solo work.

In the 1980s Oskar formed a company to manufacture high-quality harmonicas including diatonic harps in minor keys.

Several modern musicians, such as noted blues harmonica player Mike Tetrault, cite the Dane as an important influence.

There is no one in the pop music world quite like Lee Oskar. His unique role as a founding member and former lead harmonica player for the pioneer funk/jazz group, WAR, won him international renown for over two and a half decades (1969-1993).

An original member of "War" when the group formed in 1969.
