Bagdad Cafe the Trench Town is Japanese reggae band founded in 2001. Their début album Love Sunset was released in 2003. The front-woman, Mai, sings mostly in Japanese but adds in many English words too. In 2008 the band took part in the Fuji Rock Festival for the first time.
The group took their name from a combination of the 1987 West German movie "Bagdad Café", and the Trenchtown neighbourhood in Kingston, Jamaica
