PRINCE ALLA direct from Greenwich Town, Kingston

Prince Alla is a roots reggae singer best known for a series of recordings for Bertram Brown’s Freedom Sounds that are now regarded as roots reggae classics, such as Sun Is Shining, Bucket Bottom, Lot’s Wife, and Stone. He also recorded for producer Tapper Zukie, including the beautiful album Heaven Is My Roof. Continuing interest in his work saw the release of two albums of material from the 1970s on Blood & Fire records, Only Love Can Conquer and I Can Hear The Children Singing, which brought his work to a new audience. Alla has continued to release records to the present day, including an album with Jah Shaka.
