Grande Halle de la Villette,

The music of Jono Ma (the producer) and Gabriel Winterfield (the singer and guitarist) sounds stark raving Madchester, the late 80’s folly of the Happy Mondays and Stone Roses. But Surprisingly, they hail from Sydney, Australia. Though the project was only started in 2011, it is very promising. Howlin, the band’s first album, is heralded as the year’s biggest revelation. A whirlwind of psychedelic dance-floor rock, whose transposition to a live set has confirmed their success. As the opening act for the steaming Foals on their European tour, Jagwar Ma had done more than simply warm the stage. No worries, their résumé is flawless.
