Wellington drummer / composer Myele Manzanza is celebrating the release of anticipated third album 'A Love Requited' with Jonathan Crayford & Jonny Lawrence.
“A musician who clearly sees the big picture” — Modern Drummer, USA
The son of a Congolese master percussionist, born and raised in NZ listening to hip hop, jazz and dance music, as an artist Manzanza brings an eclectic style and diverse skill to his craft to create a genre bending experience rooted in jazz and African rhythm. Manzanza is a powerful drummer who has earned himself a reputation as a composer with vision, and a musician who is not afraid to experiment.
With his first Auckland performance in over a year, Manzanza will be premiering a new all-star trio at CJC with the prolific multi-award winning pianist Jonathan Crayford (Kurt Rosenwinkel, Groove Collective) & first call bassist Johnny Lawrence (Hollie Smith, Louis Baker) for what will be an unmissable performance on the Auckland jazz calendar.
