Marijata was a group of three members, Addison 'Electric' Kofi on guitar, Bob Fischian on the organ and Nat Osmanu also on guitar. They were formed in the heart of the band the Sweet Beans with the young singer, guitarist Pat Thomas. Marijata were, according to their notes pockets, "attempting to bring some freshness and the return of Raw Funk" in their recordings.
Their first LP: "This is Marijata", on the Gapophone label, is pure Funk Rawest Africa. Gapophone Records was a label founded by a young producer, Mr. George Appiah Prah, after his return from London where he lived for a period. Marijata has to his credit only two LPs on Gapophone but so essential for any collector of vinyl Afro Funk. Check!
