Under the direction of Cameroonian master musician Alphonse Daudet Touna, the Bristol-based Helele is a monstrous rhythm machine powered by the spirit of West African Afrobeat. With Alphonse’s balofon, percussion and vocals at the heart of the sound, adding to the rhythmic drive of Ron Phelan (bass), Lisa Cherian (percussion) and Greg White (drums). Vibrant soloists Dino Christoldoulou (sax) and Neil Smith guitar are the icing on the cake.
