Cameroon-born and Nigeria-bred multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and engineer Nkono Teles was a pioneer of electronics in African music, Nkono Teles was equally at home with synthesisers, drum machines, guitar effects and computer programming as traditional instruments.

One of West Africa’s most prolific producers during the 1980s, Teles is credited with more than 150 productions, spanning the work of more than 100 artists and groups. Of Nkono Teles’ three solo LPs, ‘Party Beats’ is, by far, the most innovative and characteristic.
