Jagwar Ma is an Australian psychedelic/dance band formed in Sydney in 2011, consisting of members Gabriel Winterfield (lead vocalist/guitarist), Jono Ma (synths, production, guitar), and bass guitarist/vocalist Jack Freeman (joined 2012). The band name is derived from a satirical compound of the word "jaguar" and Jono’s surname.
In 2013 Jagwar Ma signed with record labels Mom+Pop (US) Marathon Artists (EU) and Future Classic (Australia) and released their debut album “Howlin”. Howlin’ received high acclaim from music press like The NME, Pitchfork and the London Times as well as praise from several Brit Pop icons including Noel and Liam Gallagher, Johnny Marr and Tim Burgess as well as receiving props from more contemporary artists Foals and The XX. Now based in the UK, Jagwar Ma are currently touring “Howlin” and have begun preparation for their Sophomore album.
