Following the sellout success of Pama International’s Trojan Records club night & UK tour, the band will be returning in Oct & Nov’17 with their TROJAN songbook show. A show that features the greatest hits of the worlds most iconic reggae label performed by Pama Intl, complete with full string section.
Since its launch in the summer of 1968, Trojan Records has continually led the way in presenting the very best in classic Jamaican music to fans the world over.
During its early days, the company was instrumental introducing reggae into the mainstream, enjoying no less than 36 major UK hits between 1969 and 1975 and in so doing introducing the likes of Ken Boothe, Bob & Marcia, John Holt, Jimmy Cliff, Dave & Ansel Collins, The Pioneers and Toots & The Maytals to a global audience.
In 2006 Pama International became the first new band to sign to Trojan Records in 30 years. After a 7 year hiatus they returned with a new line up and album – Love & Austerity, which is due out in June 2017 and already picking up global airplay and praise.
Today, as Trojan approaches its 50th anniversary, it continues its long-standing undertaking of presenting only the very best in vintage ska, rock steady and reggae sounds.
Come join us for a celebration of the world’s best-loved and most iconic Jamaican music company and all its fantastic musical legacy, perform by Pama International.
