Jungle Fire


The sound of Jungle Fire delves deeply into Afro-Latin Funk with an authentic and highly explosive approach. This TropiFunk group from Los Angeles (USA) draw their influences from music legends like Irakere, Ray Barreto, James Brown, Fela Kuti & Manu Dibango (among many others), while creating a brew of Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Western rhythms with breaks of classic funk.

Since their emergence in 2011, Jungle Fire rapidly attracted attention within the Funk scene in Los Angeles, scorching dance clubs and underground festive joints throughout the city. This brought about the release of their first single, titled Comencemos (a version of Let’s Start by Fela Kuti) with Colemine Records in Ohio. Acclaimed by DJs, radio stations, influencers & fans of Funk music, it sold out internationally, and so they released their second single, titled Firewalker. This led to the release of their first album in 2014, Tropicoso, on the prestigious L.A. label ‘Nacional Records’. Their second LP on ‘Nacional Records’, Jambú, made  its debut on the Billboard Latin lists, reaching number 4 in February 2017. This resulted in them being included in a number of TV spots, series & films; among them being spots on Vice, Starbucks, and the sound track of Como Ser Un Latin Lover by Salma Hayek.

The diversity of the musical & cultural origins of the members of Jungle Fire are a reflection of the musical & cultural panorama of Los Angeles. The mixture of the international and multicultural sounds & flavours are fundamental components of the band’s overall sound. Individually & collectively, the members of Jungle Fire have performed, recorded and/or toured with such different artists as Stevie Wonder, Ozomatli, Breakestra, Alice Russell, De La Soul, Celia Cruz, LCD Soundsystem, U2, Greyboy Allstars, Kelis and a host more.
