Boomkat Product Review:
Hailing from Amsterdam, you might not think Jungle By Night would be able to nail their special brand of Afro Beat just as well as they do. The ensemble is nine-strong at this point and they play a mélange of afrobeat from Nigeria and jazz from Ethiopia. Obviously this should appeal to the Honest Jon’s crowd, but you’d be surprised how far their style has traveled. Recently they were picked up to support John Legend & The Roots, and if that isn’t a seal of approval I don’t know what is. Late last year, the band even got invited to jam with former members of the Fela Kuti band… so, you know this is going to be the real deal – now all’s left for you to do is grab this EP and let your own body do the work.
