Drift Continental Presents 002: Hélélé
Drift Continental returns once again to The Crofters Rights. This time we’ve brought along the 5 piece sensation Hélélé to pump some sunshine into these winter months. Headed by Alphonse Touna born in Cameroon, having migrated to the UK in 2005. He is able to fantastically merge the traditional styles of Highlife and Afrobeat that lay in his roots, into its modern form with ridiculously enjoyable results.
Hélélé is made up of Ron Phelan (bass), Greg White (Drums), Dino (tenor sax) and Neil Smith (lead guitar). In the ten years since its formation Hélélé have had a number of achievements under their belt including two studio albums Sanglana and Mawanda along with numerous shows at Glastonbury Festival, Shambala Festival, and at two world famous music venues; London Southbank Centre & Bristol Colston Hall. They’ve also supported artist such as; Cuban Eliades Ochoa of the Buena Vista Social Club and South African Jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela.
Supporting this monumental group of musicians will be The Drift Continental DJ’s doing an extended set before and after Hélélé taking you late into the evening...who knows, we may even invite some guests along to join us.
Playing anything from the realm of Afro-Funk, Highlife, Afrobeat, Broken-Beat, Brazilian Disco, Funk & Soul, Re-Edits and maybe some early Acid House for good measure. If ANY of the above excites you, then an evening of joyful indulgence awaits you.
