Naya Records is an independent 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.

to the future in roots music."
