Junglewood—founded in 2008 by the Panamanian jazz musician Danilo Perez, the sound engineer and producer Rob Griffin and Earth Train—is dedicated to providing settings and programs rich in biological and cultural diversity and conducive to artistic expression in harmony with nature.
Junglewood will eventually have facilities at the eastern entrance to the Mamoní Valley Preserve and at Gun Hill where musicians, visual artists, and educators can collaborate on nature-inspired works involving the performing and visual arts.
Danilo Perez is Junglewood’s Senior Artistic Advisor and Rob Griffin is Junglewood’s international ambassador at large. The Executive Director of Junglewood programs is Shea Welsh, a Los Angeles-based musician and composer who also serves on the faculty of the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.
There's a rhythm and an order to nature. There's also an order to music, one that emanates from the human heart and spirit. I think it's fantastic that through Junglewood people are able to draw this parallel.
