The Chakachas are best remembered for their hit disco single "Jungle Fever". The 1970 album by the same name is a revelation of Latin funk, with horns playing against groovy rhythms and some fine vocal work. Exciting in every aspect it's a real tasty and nasty combination of sounds. The album is characterized by its versatile percussion, consisting of maracas, congas and drums, and funky guitar riffs and horns. There's a beautiful version of Earle Hagen's classic standard "Harlem Nocturne", known for its groovy bassline and guitar breaks. Jungle Fever is a classic which should be included in every collection of funk and Latin music.

The Belgian based group The Chakachas were Latin soul studio musicians. They're also known as Les Chakachas or Los Chakachas. They started in the late 1950s, recording a playful mixture of Latin music, jazz, and European-style exotica.

Jungle Fever is available as a limited first pressing of 1,000 individually numbered copies on "jungle" green vinyl.

"When one gets to the title track at the end, it's almost superfluous; the set is so delightfully joyous, sophisticated and hip, 'Jungle Fever' is just some naughty, nasty, icing on this exotic cake. As an album, Jungle Fever is singular, not only for its origins, but also for its achievement as music. Its endurance is well-deserved: this is a finger-popping, hip-twitching classic." - AllMusic
