Firewalker – The Movie

fw4This has been a long time coming, and when it was put up early this week, we knew we had to get it out to you. Jungle Fire took the scene by storm with a few 45s on the Colemine label, and then with their full length Tropicoso. Their brand of Latin infused afro funk and soul has been lighting fire to turntables and stages from LA to Colombia. A successful Kickstarter project , the short film was inspired by the band’s smash tune “Firewalker”. Written and shot by Alejo Restrepo and Roger Gonzalez, look for this great piece of film at a festival circuit near you. It’s a fitting tribute to the music of one of the hardest working bands out there right now. An illustration of the power of their music and much more than a throwback look. Featuring some of LA’s most well knownup and coming actors and dancers, the film has the band on a mission to get dancing happening again in the jungle. Filmed with 70’s B and Blaxploitation movies in mind, it’s one of the coolest videos we’ve seen since Action Bronson went rock on “Easy Rider”. If you love the music of Jungle Fire, you’ll love what Restrepo and Gonzalez have done to transfer the sound to celluloid and keep audiences entertained as JF do in their shows. We’re sure you’ll be watching this clip more than once. Another burner from the Jungle Fire crew and extended family. Sabrosa!

Keep Diggin’!
