Jungal fever in Hope

Australian trio performs in Memorial Park as part of summer concert series

Australian folk-rock group Jungal performs in Memorial Park on Sunday.

Jungal returns to Hope this weekend for Concerts in the Park.

The trio creates their own brand of Australian-flavoured roots music blended with folk, pop, rock and soul. Their energetic performances and catchy, positive songwriting comes to life through three harmonious voices that create a unique and powerful sound.

“We generally write about life experiences – the good and the bad – and we are always true to ourselves which is reflected in our music,” said drummer Jessie Jungalwalla, who has been making music with her sister Leisha for over 10 years. Bass guitar player Victoria Beard joined the group about seven years ago.

“We all bonded over our love of music and the desire to put out a strong female band into the Australian music scene,” said Jungalwalla.

Jungal has been described as having the heart of John Butler, the soul of Amy Winehouse, and the power of Ani DiFranco.

The trio performs at the bandshell in Memorial Park on July 8, from 2-4 p.m.
