Doppelkonzert: Alfa Mist + Myele Manzanza Quartet

Mousonturm Saal unbestuhlt


Alfa Mist

Growing up in Newham, East London, Alfa Mist began his musical journey as a grime and hiphop producer. The self-taught pianist and sometimes rapper soon found himself drawn to the jazz, world music and film soundtracks he discovered through sampling. His sound blends melancholy jazz harmony with alternative hip-hop and soul. His recently released second album ‘Antiphon’ has pushed him forward in the new jazz scene as one to watch following the warm reception of his first record ‘Nocturne’ which featured the likes of Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei.

Unfortunately, Nubya Garcia canceled the concert at short notice. Instead, the Myele Manzanza Quartet will perform.

The son of a Congolese master percussionist, born and raised in NZ listening to hip hop, jazz and dance music. Myele brings an eclectic style and diverse skill to his craft, creating a genre bending experience rooted in jazz and african rhythm. This has earned him a reputation as a powerful drummer, a composer with vision and a producer and musician who is not afraid to experiment.
