PAMA INTERNATIONAL - The Altruistic Soul Sounds of…

Following up on their critically acclaimed **** Mojo album Love & Austerity and hugely successful Trojan Records songbook tour, Pama Int’l return with their much touted soul album - "The Altruistic Soul Sounds of…” on their own Happy People label.

Since their formation in 2001 Pama Int’l have released 10 studio albums and recorded 4 BBC Radio One Maida Vale sessions. In 2006 they became the first new band to sign to Trojan Records in 30 years. The collective nature of the band has seen them work with; Billy Bragg, Ken Boothe, Rico, Derrick Morgan, Dawn Penn, Dave & Ansel Collins, Dennis Alcapone, Wrongtom, and Mad Professor, whilst their line up has attracted members from The Specials, Madness, Galliano, Steel Pulse, and the Style Council.

The album draws on songwriter/founder Sean Flowerdew’s love of Southern Soul and boasts influences of Al Green, Duane Allman, Aretha, Otis, Betty Swann, Wilson Pickett and Booker T & The MGs. It is due for release in January 2019, when they will be touring the UK.

With early plays in for the album from the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show on BBC Radio 6, where Craig enthused “it’s just superb… believe me it sounds tidy” and a live debut at Alexandra Palace supporting Toots & The Maytals to 8500 people, The Altruistic Soul Sound of Pama International, looks set to usher in a wonderful new era for the band.
