Bio

Naya Records is an independent reggae record label founded and established in 2009 by drummer and producer Nathan Sabanayagam. After a six-year period of recording music with veteran reggae musicians and artists in Kingston, Jamaica, Nathan decided it was time to bring the music to the world; Naya Records was born! Many of the early recordings and releases happened at the home of legendary guitarist Earl "Chinna" Smith in Halfway Tree, Kingston. Naya Records has released six full-length albums and a handful of singles, featuring both young and veteran artists from Jamaica and abroad, including Big Youth, Johnny Clarke, Ken Boothe, Bob Andy, Luciano, Micah Shemiah, Sarah Brindell, and Toussaint. Nathan also produced, mixed, and drummed for VP Records, Megalith and PeaceTones. Recently, Nathan has teamed up with trombonist Alex Beram to revive Kings Highway, a horn-driven ensemble devoted to the education and performance of early Jamaican Roots music. Nathan is also the leader of Naya Rockers, an international backing band working with artists including Mikey General, Kiddus I, Andy Bassford, Tinga Stewart, Asadenaki Livingston, Addis Pablo, and Iba Mahr.
