Marijata was a group made up of three members – Kofi ‘Electric’ Addison on drums, Bob Fischlan on organ and Nat Osmanu on guitar, hailing from Ghana. ‘This Is Marijata’ is the groups first LP; released originally on the Gapophone label – it is pure, rootsy, raw, driving African funk music of the highest order, now highly sought-after in both its original and previously reissued forms.

Produced in 1976 at Gapophone Records, Accra, Ghana. Recorded at Ghana Film Industry Corp. Studios. Licensed from George Prah, founder of Gapophone Records.
