Umoya is a German based reggae band, founded in 1982. Its name is Swahili for “unity”. Their EP ‘Satisfy/ Party / Feels Good/ Oya Kae’ was released as 12″ in 1985. There might be a subtle difference in spelling the name but Umoja was formed in South Africa by Alec ‘Om’ Khaoli’s after leaving Harari.
This 45 rpm single “Oya Kae” was released that same year on CBS Records. The spelling of the name of Umoja is confusing since the German group recorded this seldom seen track. Alas, the pressing or mastering of this particular disc is not 100% but its rarity makes up for the sound quality.
Does anybody knows in which country this single was originally released??
