(Jamaica)

Bam Bam are two of the most used words in the dancehall and reggae music business.


These two words was made popular by one of dancehall and reggae music first female dancehall artiste sister Nancy. She had a track on her 1982 album "One Two" with the same name.

Take a listen below..



The 1990s saw these two words rise again with the release of Chaka Demus & Pliers Murder She Wrote on Taxi label for Lowell Charles ‘Sly’ Dunbar & Robert ‘Robbie’ Shakespeare.

At dancehall sessions and night clubs petrons will also used these two words to get the DJ's/selector attention that they want the song which is playing to be pulled up (rewind).

In 2011 Mr. Vegas' own Clifford-Ray Music brings back di Bam Bam riddim, Well dis time around ya get Mr. Vegas, Mr. Lexx and' Gyptian all giving great performances. It was the same riddim but with a different name "The Sequel Riddim".

In 1966 Toots and the Maytals won the first-ever Jamaican Independence Festival Popular Song Competition with their original song "Bam Bam" (not to be confused with the Sister Nancy song of the same title).

There are other songs in which these two words were used but are not readily coming to mind.
