by Jungle By Night
Jungle by Night consists of nine young lads from Amsterdam who use their musical upbringing, taste, backgrounds and unstoppable eagerness to produce a unique mix of afrobeat, ethiojazz, funk, dub and rock. The band members were acquainted through school, street and family bonds. Their love for raw Africa oriented funk started in 2010, which led them to relocate their lives to the rehearsal studio.
‘Hidden’ is the first full length album by Jungle By Night, who retain their youthful exuberance and innocent energy, and delve deeper into their own sound. Moving slightly away from the afrobeat blueprint that characterized last year’s self-titled debut EP, the nine-piece have added Indonesian gamelan tones and studio effects to their afro-funk template, and they now explore other parts of Africa like Mali’s desert soul and djembe rhythms from Senegal.
After two years of playing, and having performed over 80 gigs last year, the group have settled in their own rhythm, and ‘Hidden’ sees them trying out new ideas and forms. It led former Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen to describe their music as the “evolution of afrobeat”.
