1. Product Details

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.Addison Osmanu and Fischlan formed a band called the Sweet Beans with a young singer and guitarist namely the legendary Pat Thomas. They released False Lover GAPO LP 02 in 1974 on Gapophone Records before recording This Is Marijata GAPO LP 012 and then Pat Thomas Introduces Marijata GAPO LP 013 shortly afterwards.This Is Marijata is summed up perfectly by the text on the back cover: Three young musicians of the Sweet Beans believe that in music and entertainment business there is no room for mediocrity if ones music is to win over a bigger audience and fame. How could they give the public a taste of the talent they had so meticulously nurtured since they began their musical careers without upsetting the current musical inclination in the country Simple Gapahone Records quick to spot talent listened to the music of Kofi Electric Addison Drummer Bob Fischlan Organist and Nat Osmanu Guitarist liked it and the result after month of hard work is what you have on this album THIS IS MARIJATA.Backed by a group of hand picked musicians the whole album is exclusively the work of three young men who are trying to bring back some freshness and raw funk into the current flash-in-the-pan songs being recorded in this country.I Walk Alone a cool scintillatingly slow number displays some interesting instrumental works. No Condition Is Permanen and Break Through exhibit originality using the funk medium. Even though the vocal rendition sounds somewhat on the hoarse and gritty side a strong impression is left on the mind of the listener that the boys have something going for them right in there. With the emergence of this album I believe subsequent albums will breathe more freshness into the whole entertainment scene. Right on brothers Marijata.
