Never miss another 'Helele' show
"Hélélé is alive, elevating the crowd through infectious grooves of Afro-beat, funk and Jazz.
Band leader Alphonse Daudet Touna developed his skills from a young age and inherited his musicianship from his father and grandfather.
After an inspirational journey from Cameroon, via Italy to the UK, he joined forces with other great musicians and released two albums "Sanglana" and "Mawanda"."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Alphonse Daudet Touna, has worked solidly on building a creative outlet for his musical inspiration and his six-piece band Hélélé is the result. He has played around the world on a journey that has taken him from Cameroon in West Africa, through France and Italy, to the UK. Now a resident of Bristol, he has formed the band with some of the city’s finest session and jazz musicians.
Lead vocal, he plays a balafon (an African marimba) he made himself. The rich balafon melody creates another style of afro-jazz through a mix of sound inspired by the equatorial rhythms from the Bantu forest such as Assiko, Bikoutsi, Makouné, Makossa and Bolobo.
Their performances are spontaneous and alive. Full of vibration and energy, the band elevates the crowd through the infectious dance rhythms of jazz, Afro-beat and funk. Great solos are weaved within the framework of rare grooves and percussion.
