Jungle by Night
Jungle by Night
The release party in a packed Paradiso drew the attention of the media and promoters. The result was unheard of. The young band Jungle by Night preformed at festivals like The Great WideOpen and was asked to the stages of Melkweg and Rotown. Contradictions galore at venues as squatters dome OT301, rock n roll stage Pacific Park and mainstream venue Heineken Music Hall, where they supported the John Legends & The Roots’ concert.
Jungle by Night showed and convinced everyone that they are worthy of all stages. Living memories come back reminiscing of the performance the band gave as support of Ethiopian jazz legend Mulatu Astatke. It was his music that inspired the repertoire of the band. Dutch radio station Radio6 and streaming service 22Tracks.com embraced the band, and prime time TV program De Wereld Draait Door invited them to the show.
It is an understatement that Jungle by Night is well liked within de Dutch borders and foreign adventures are awaiting. In December 2011 the band performed in Alimentation Générale in Paris for a wild crowd. Afterwards the band was honored with a jam sessions with former band members of their hero Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti. Crossing borders to England is awaiting in 2011, as well as already planned gigs in Belgium. On Noorderslag 2011 the band will play a taste of their live EP.
This EP is bound to be released in April on Kindred Spirits. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
