Featuring Lynval Golding (The Specials) alongside members from
Bentley Rhythm Ace, PWEI, The Lee Perry band, Galliano & more.
60s Soul, 70s Reggae & 21st century commentary...
Stax meets King Tubby UPTOWN!
Pama Intl have released 5 critically acclaimed albums, recorded 2 Radio One Sessions and played triumphant sets at Glastonbury, Womad, Respect, Wickerman, Bestival, Beautiful Days and many more festivals. They've performed alongside Jimmy Cliff, Prince Buster, Lee Perry, The Skatalites, Toots & The Maytals, Mad Professor, Mick Jones' Carbon/Silicon, Don Letts, Madness and Easy Star All-stars, creating a huge grassroots following, with a live show that has become second to none. 2006 saw them become the first new band in 30 years to sign to Trojan Records.
Getting back to their deep-rooted DIY philosophy Pama Intl have now launched their own Rockers Revolt label (through Universal). Their new album.....

John Collins (producer of The Specials iconic 'Ghost Town') and already looks set to exceed all expectations, with airplay from 60 (and counting) stations/DJs, including; Radio One; Rob Da Bank, Chris Goldfinger and Mike Davies, Radio 2 Steve Lamacq, Alex Lester, David Rodigan, Gary Crowley, Charlie Gillet, BBC6; Don Letts, Breakfast Show w/ Shaun Keaveny, Tom Robinson, xfm-Jon Kennedy, Springline Jamaica and a live session on Craig Charles' BBC6 Funk & Soul show.
