An upbringing steeped in traditional African rhythm combined with formal jazz training and solid time on the road has earned Myele Manzanza the reputation of a composer with vision, a producer and musician who is not afraid to experiment and a powerful drummer, which most recently has seen him picked up by the likes of U.S. artist Theo Parrish and Australian jazz visionary Ross McHenry

For the last six years he turned heads internationally as part of New Zealand soul act Electric Wire Hustle forming a critical voice in their live performance and both their debut and sophomore albums. In a bold move last year however, Myele stepped out from this long term post to release his debut solo album One which was released internationally by BBE Records.

Leading from the drum-kit the fearsomely talented Myele presents his new project, the afro-electro-jazz-n-funk ensemble The Eclectic. Bringing his album to life with a concoction of seven of Aotearoa's finest, featuring leading ladies Rachel Fraser and Bella Kalolo, Myele's father, afrobeat maestro, Sam Manzanza and the powerhouse rhythm section of Dan Hayles (keys), Dan Ryland (guitar) and Marika Hodgson (bass).
