TROMP 2022 Festival opening - Jungle by Night


Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, Grote Zaal

The nine-headed instrumental collective Jungle by Night released six albums putting the language of their analog instruments first, making people dance on rhythms and grooves inspired by krautrock, dance, jazz and funk. With its unique sound, Jungle by Night plays for any crowd: from jazz, to pop and from dance to hip hop. It all started back in 2009, when a group of friends and family members from Amsterdam got together with a penchant for the same music. They formed a band in which not the vocals are centre, but the interplay between their horns, percussion, and chords. Artists such as the Budos Band (with members of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings), Mulatu Astatke, Fela Kuti and el michael’s affair were sources of inspiration. Soon after their first concert, the band got picked up by radio, national tv and several festivals in the Netherlands. From here on, their combined taste and untamable hunger for music led the way.

The corona crisis wiped an agenda full of shows clean. To keep the spirits high, the band released an album with Live Recordings of their previous tour. As part of the ‘new normal’ they gave an exclusive live stream concert at Paradiso Amsterdam. Jungle by Night didn’t sit still and worked hard to find new ways of creating music from home. On 11 September, one of their newly created singles was released; Unlimited Love. In spring of 2021, Jungle by Night performed a number of Fieldlab-concerts in preparation for their autumn tour to celebrate the release of their upcoming album ‘Algorhythm’. Now that the clubs and festivals reopened, the band is ready to take live music to a new level.

Special guest: AGOSTINHO SEQUEIRA, winner of the International TROMP Percussion Competition 2020.
