Boom Pam (Hebrew: בום פם) is a rock trio from Tel Aviv, Israel.

Founded in 2003, Boom Pam took its name from Aris San's song of the same name,[1] and plays a mixture of Mediterranean, Balkan, Greek,[2] rock and surf music in a format of a power trio consisting of electric guitar, tuba and drums.[3] They have been playing in a variety of venues, from small clubs to large concert halls. Boom Pam served as the opening act for the reunion show of the well-known Israeli indie rock band "Minimal Compact", as well as Emir Kusturica's No Smoking Orchestra. That, along with a showcase at WOMEX 2006, launched their worldwide touring career.

Boom Pam's debut album was recorded in Frankfurt for the German label "Essay Recordings". The band co-produced the album with DJ Shantel. This LP was released during the Spring of 2006 and is distributed worldwide. The album went straight into the top ten list of the European World Music charts. They released their second album, "Puerto Rican Nights", in 2008. Their debut show in North America was at the GlobalFest 2007. Afterwards they toured throughout the USA and Canada, opening for The Ventures in California and playing at the Winnipeg Folk Festival and the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Boom Pam's third album was recorded in late 2009 and was released in 2010 by the Tel Aviv based label "Audio Montage". Following the album release, they made promotional appearances at SXSW[4] and various venues in Europe.

Boom Pam have also been actively involved in various projects. They worked with the Batsheva Dance Company, released several Israeli hit singles, recorded film music, collaborated with Balkan Beat Box and Kutiman,[5] and played a concert with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
