Release date: September, 16 of 2016. Ital Foundation came together in the winter of 1977, out of a shared belief in Rastafarianism and deep love of reggae music. Their music tackles global issues of colonialism, poverty, prophecy and redemption.

They released only one album in their legendary career, the 1980 release, 'Ital Foundations Vol 1'. A tumultous history rought with trial and tribulation resulted in Ital Foundation being an underground musical movement that saw record sales all over the world while the band languished in obscurity.

Ital Foundation has now reunited, with several of the original band members combined with new blood to write the Vol. 2 of their story. Perhabs next year, Ital Foundation will come back live and direct to claim their throne amongst the kings groups of Reggae music : Aswad, Steel Pulse and Black Uhuru.

We've released two Rastafari anthems with 'Repatriation' for the first time on a 12'' vinyl (ten minutes extended mix) and 'Blackman's Redemption', a tribute to Marcus Garvey's prophecy. Late 2017, the album 'Ital Foundation Vol 1' will be available on vinyl LP, CD and Digital Download.
