Trojan Records, in association with The London International Ska Festival, are delighted to announce the first TROJAN UK tour in 4 decades!
The tour features live guests Pama International (who in 2006 were the first new act to sign to the label in 30 years!) and for the Nottingham date we have SFL Sound from Sheffield DJing their Trojan Explosion!
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, Lee Perry, John Holt, Jimmy Cliff, and The Maytals to a global audience.
Today, as Trojan approaches its 50th anniversary, and in conjunction with the world-famous London Intl Ska Festival, it continues its long-standing undertaking of presenting only the very best in ska, rocksteady and reggae sounds with a UK tour.
Come join us for this unique celebration of the world's best-loved and most iconic Jamaican music company and all its fantastic musical legacy!
