Abro's open minded approach to music stands out in this album. His apparent attraction for groove and R&B alongside his comprehensive musical experience makes this album a real treat for listeners of all colours of the rainbow.

The Bass, not usually the main focus, gets the spotlight. Abro brings out the best from both the upright bass and the electric bass, shining a light on their sweet, vibrant character with his intricate grooves and melodies.

Abro -
“The name of the album ‘Leaf Boy’ comes from an old memory of mine, growing up in a village house in Capetown with lots of trees and vegetables which were a big part of my childhood. Nowadays, after years in the city, I live in a village in the countryside, I grow vegetables and plants, it's my therapy and joy and it takes me back. Working with Rejoicer was such a pure organic experience. He brought out of me, with his unique twist, my different colors of love for music.”

Rejoicer -
“Abro is a very particular man. It was a pure delight working and constructing this album together. Our intimate sessions before recording with the trio were magical and we got to set the vibes, temperatures and colors for all the tracks. “

Track Name: Honey Bee feat. KerenDun
I’m the honey guide
with a fuzzy plumey glide
drawn to mystery
nature always by my side

honey got me hooked
passion is a juicy fruit
beauty is a sign
I should take a closer look

In my waggle jive
you're my humming honey hive
but when the pollen calls
I get an urge to fly outside

I Love You
I Love You, And You, And You

I'm a honey bee
what can I do but honey-be-me?
When the sun comes out
poppy fields be calling me

Flowers droop and drool
if you don't linger you’re a fool
kisses are surprise
if you find some I'll be cool

Baby don't let go
don't you know i need you so?
Baby take my hand
im gonna show you nice and slow

Love ain't cheap, it’s free!
we can sip from bush and tree
and in the winter time
it’ll be only you and me

I Love You
I Love You, And You, And You, And You, And You…
