Monyaka ‎– Go Deh Yaka (1983)

Monyaka was a reggae/funk band from Los Angeles, founded in 1974 as the Soul Supersonics, the band spent most of their time backing up visiting reggae stars before setting up their own record label, Hevyaka, in 1977 and releasing single Rocking Time and album Classical Roots.

It took five years for further releases to come out of the group, by which time the group had renamed to Monyaka; in 1982, they released Stand Up Strong. This itself was not particularly successful, however follow-up single Go Deh Yaka, made #14 in the UK and #48 in the US.

Mixed by John Morales & Sergio Munzibai for the 12″ single release.
