"The future of drums in NZ is firmly in the hands of Myele Manzanza, believe it!" - NZ Musician Magazine
Fresh from a two month stint in Europe with Electric Wire Hustle, Myele Manzanza gets the opportunity to bring his band into The Matterhorn Saturday 17th of September! For free!
Myele Manzanza (EWH) - drums
Crete Haami (Neon Shore, Hollie Smith) - bass

Music from his to be released solo project "One" has already been playlisted by the likes of prolific BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson. His music merges left field hip hop, contemporary improvisation and grooves that draw a line from the African tradition through to modern electronic music. No matter what the style, Myele always plays it like there's no tomorrow.
