As part of The London Int’l Ska Festival’s 30th anniversary, and following their sell-out success of their Trojan Records club night & UK tour, Pama International will be returning with their truly unique Trojan Records songbook show.

A show that features the greatest hits of the worlds most iconic reggae label reimagined by Pama International. The London leg of the tour will feature very special guests/legendary Trojan recording artists; Ken Boothe (famed for his No.1 hit Everything I Own, Crying Over You, Silver Words and so much more) and Desmond Dekker’s original harmony singers The Aces (who sang on the global hits Israelites, 007 Shanty Town & It Mek).

What’s more every customer attending the show will receive a Trojan songbook which features all the lyrics and history of each song.

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 July 2017 and already picking up global airplay and praise.
