This drummer from New Zealand grew up around rhythm. Inspired by his percussionist father, Myele Manzanza has made his way to hip-hop, house and electro. After touring with Detroit producers Theo Parrish and Recloose, he is now based in London where he is dedicated to making “Crisis & Opportunity”, a series of five albums reflecting his beat making and production skills. Through music steeped in London’s clubbing culture, Myele Manzanza explores the frontiers of modern jazz by surrounding himself with both young talents and eminent artists. In the third volume, released in November 2022, he notably collaborated with singer and guitarist Rosie Frater-Taylor and neo-soul pioneer Omar.
