The Itals

Profile:
Reggae vocal group originally comprised of boyhood friends Ronnie Davis, Keith Porter and Lloyd Rockets from the Negril region of Westmoreland Parish, Jamaica. They formed a vocal group in 1976 after the single released by Keith Porter, Ina Dis Ya Time became a hit. Their producer, Lloyd Campbell, felt a group could be more successful than a solo artist so The Itals was formed, with Keith being the main composer and lead vocalist. Lloyd Ricketts left the group due to legal issues and was replaced by David Isaac in 1987. David died in 1994 and was replaced by Keith's daughter Kada. Ronnie Davis left the group in1997 to record a solo album. Keith continues to tour with two of his children, Darien Porter and Kada Porter, providing harmonies and has released several solo albums: Mi Livity in 2003, Get it On in 2019, Ital Music in 2020 as well as an Itals reunion with Let Dem Talk in 2009. Keith is the only remaining member of the original Itals still living.
