Myele Manzanza


When he emerged from the Wellington music scene in the mid-to-late 2000s, Myele Manzanza was keeping the groove flowing with Olmecha Supreme, Electric Wire Hustle, The Recloose Live Band, and numerous other projects

A decade and a half later, the now veteran drummer, producer, DJ, and composer is based in London, where he has spent the last few years finding his place within the UK and Europe’s vibrant modern jazz, soul, hip-hop, house, techno, and experimental music scenes.
