Tonight, the Late Late Show presents… MYELE and Friends! Late Late Show Special!
First Word’s NZ-hailing Myele Manzanza brings his infectious blend of acid jazz and african rhythm.
Former member of Electric Wire Hustle, Myele Manzanza has gained popularity as a soloist. Born and raised in New Zealand and a son of a Congolese master percussionist, Myele has joined with Aron Ottignon and Matt Dal Din on this new project.
From a young age Myele’s childhood love was hip and dance music, an added influencer to his diverse take on music. His latest LP, OnePointOne, has received great reviews from Discogs, allmusic and muzic.net; describing it as “musically amazing. The strings, the guest vocalists- each independant detail adds an extra layer of depth and resonance to the songs.”
Earning himself a reputation as a composer with a vision, a producer, a musician who’s experimental attitude pays off and a mesmerizing drummer, has seen him recognised by dance legends, Theo Parish.
With formidable international buzz, the heavyweight funk and soul, jazz and african influenced talent is an atmospheric delicacy that can’t go unheard.
“His first solo album One is a soulfully flowing album of rich sound, voice and percussive mastery.” – The AU Review
“He is an inventive, accomplished, energetic drummer with a vibrant sound, and is alive to the power of dynamics” – The Sydney Morning Herald
