The JUNGLE FIRE sound digs deep into afro/latin funk with an approach that is both authentic and highly explosive! Comprised of musicians from the Los Angeles region, JUNGLE FIRE pulls it’s influences from such legends as Ray Camacho, Enrique Lynch, Ray Barretto, James Brown, Fela Kuti and Manu Dibango (just to name a few) to create a melting pot of afro-cuban rhythms, break-beats and 70’s inspired funk.
Originally conceived as a one-off project back in 2011, JF quickly gained attention and thus proved its place among the thriving LA funk/soul scene by lighting up local clubs, venues and underground warehouse parties.
The buzz grew and word of mouth spread eventually linking up the band with the Ohio-based indie soul label Colemine Records to cut their first 7” single “Comencemos” (a cover of Fela’s “Let’s Start”). Lauded by DJ’s, radio stations, tastemakers and rabid funk fans across the globe “Comencemos” sold out internationally paving the way for the second 7” Colemine release “Firewalker”. A full length LP is currently in the works.
“Few bands live up to their name in the way Jungle Fire do; fusing Cumbia, Afrobeat and trad funk, each JF jam blazes the floor with real power” as described by Juno Records UK, best sums up the Jungle Fire live show. Serving up a healthy dose of originals and deep latin/afro funk covers all cooked up together in a live mixtape style set ensuring an energy that is nothing short of fire.
Although the members of JF all have diverse musical backgrounds the band as a whole is a direct reflection of the culture and musical landscape of Los Angeles, which has been the biggest influence behind the sound and flavor that is uniquely Jungle Fire.
Since their inception Jungle Fire has played an impressive amount of club dates and festivals both domestic and abroad having shared the stage with Shuggi Otis, The Blackbyrds, Lee Fields, Charles Wright, The Budos Band and even performing for Los Angeles’ recent mayoral inauguration.
During the winter of 2013 Jungle Fire embarked on a massively successful U.K. tour playing to packed venues at every stop including headlining Craig Charles’ Funk Club (Band On The Wall) and BBC 6 Radio.
Individually and collectively, JF’s musicians have recorded, toured or played with Stevie Wonder, Breakestra, Ozomatli, Ethio Cali, Quantic, Alice Russell, De La Soul, Emily Wells, La Santa Cecilia, Simple Citizens, Del The Funky Homosapien, Celia Cruz, Orgone, Myron & E, The Greyboy Allstars, The Lions and Big Daddy Kane.
