The Budos Band scoring a Quentin Tarantino film.
Why You Should Care:
No current band is exploring Afro-Cuban rhythms with the talent and precision of L.A.’s Jungle Fire, who released their first LP, Tropicoso, a few short weeks ago. Formed in 2011 as a one-off, Jungle Fire built its reputation through well-received club dates and as an opening act for the likes of Shuggie Otis and Lee Fields. On its website, the band describes its sound as a "melting pot of Afro-Cuban rhythms, breakbeats, and 70s inspired funk." “Firewalker” demonstrates that an Afro-Cuban funk track can succeed as a dance club single. You cannot resist this beat.
Tropicoso is out now on Nacional Records.
