We are very sorry to announce that the two Pama Intl shows this weekend have had to be postponed. The Brighton Blind Tiger show should now happen in March, and the London Book Club one in May. Dates to follow shortly. All tickets remain valid.
After a 2 year hiatus and mammoth search for a world-beating female soul singer Pama Intl are back with a brand new line up, sound, singles, album & that very singer in January 2013! Their first album back – Pama Intl – Soulfire! see’s them move away from their Jamaican influences & as the title suggests into blazin’ soul territory. A raw and rawkus rhythm & blues/southern soul assault, that draws from Stax, Otis, Aretha, Ike & Tina and in true Pama fashion makes it their very own.
Select clubs shows are now being booked for January & March 2013, to promote a series of new singles, with their ninth studio album Soulfire! scheduled for a summer release.
We are delighted to announce Pama Intl return with an all new line up & album in Spring 2013!!
Watch this space for more details coming very soon.
He is also working on two new band projects, the in-house studio band for the Phoenix City label, aptly named The Phoenix City All-stars, and a soul/rhythm and blues band. Watch this space!

In the mid Nineties, Mad Professor’s profile increased to global status after remixing Massive Attack. The resulting album ‘No Protection’ went onto sell over 1 million copies.
Since 2001 Pama Intl have been brewing a unique blend of 60’s soul, 70’s reggae with a 21st century commentary. In 2006 they became the first new band to sign to the legendaryTrojan Records in 30 years. The collective’s line up has included members from The Specials, Madness, Steel Pulse, Galliano, Lee Perry Band, PWEI, Steel Pulse, Style Council, Bentley Rhythm Ace, The Selecter and collaborations with Dennis Alcapone, Dave & Ansel Collins, Billy Bragg, Groove Corp, Mungos Hi Fi, Michie One, Rico Rodriguez, Derrick Morgan and Dawn Penn.
