The new album draws on songwriter/founder Sean Flowerdew’s love of Northern, British and Southern Soul and boasts influences of Al Green, Aretha, Otis, Betty Swann, Wilson Pickett, Joe Cocker, Duane Allman, Janis Joplin and Booker T & The MGs, but in true Pama Int'l fashion make it their very own.
With early plays in for the album from the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show on BBC Radio 6, where Craig proclaimed “it’s just superb” 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 beautiful soul era for the band.
DJs on this soul special evening are two of the capitals finest - the ever brilliant Alan Handscombe and Tim Fuller.
