Jungle Brothers are an American hip hop trio composed of Michael Small (Mike Gee), Nathaniel Hall (Afrika Baby Bam), and Sammy Burwell (DJ Sammy B). Known as the pioneers of the fusion of jazz, hip-hop, and house music, they were the first hip-hop group to collaborate with a house-music producer. The trio released their debut album, Straight out the Jungle in July 1988. Their hip-house club hit single, “I’ll House You” was added to the album in late-1988 reissues. Fostered by Kool DJ Red Alert, the Jungle Brothers success would pave the way for De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, and eventually the Native Tongues collective that they founded.
MAK NOVA AND THE KINGS
Mak Nova and her five-piece band are a force of nature. In March 2022, they sold out their first show with over 300 people in attendance. In 2019 upon recent graduation from college, Mak Nova got serious about making music and her sound and style took off when she teamed up with a Congolese virtuoso guitarist named Elie Mabanza. Together, Mak Nova and her band create a genre of their own; a captivating fusion of hip-hop, neo-soul and afro-beat. They are currently based in Santa Cruz, CA.
