Jagwar Ma is an Australian rock outfit from Sydney. Their debut album, Howlin, was released in 2013, garnering critical acclaim, as well as praise from Noel Gallagher and comparisons to the Madchester and Baggy music genres of the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The band’s name is derived from Jono Ma’s surname and a painting of a jaguar found by the side of a road and given to the band by a friend. Winterfield states “He kinda gave it to us and it became this sort of omen. I took a photo of it and had it as the background on my phone, it was a weird thing.”
