Modern hip hop, psychedelic music and soul, Electric Wire Hustle’s unique sound challenges boundaries.
After two sell-out shows at last year’s Christchurch Arts Festival and fresh from shows at SXSW in Texas and Sziget Festival in Hungary, the band has put together a special show with the people who helped shape their path – their parents.
Vocalist and guitarist, Mara TK is son of New Zealand blues guitarist legend Billy TK; drummer Myele Manzanza is son of Congolese master percussionist Sam Manzanza, one of the first musicians to tour African music in New Zealand; and keyboardist Taay Ninh’s mother is traditional Vietnamese vocalist Le Nuong.
Electric Wire Hustle are bringing their parents on stage to play a series of original compositions, culminating in a performance of the band’s own music.
‘… inspiring collaboration of the traditional with the modern and the rootsy with the electronic, as well as an obvious feeling of closeness and family kinship…’ – The Press
