The 80s club scene gave birth to the sound that Ardijah's founder Ryan Monga calls Polyfonk. After a long incubation in the South Auckland club scene, the group burst forth with that sound on their 1987 debut album. This episode looks at the elements of Polyfonk, the multiple talents of Ryan and Betty-Anne Monga and discusses the album's production with Ryan Monga and keyboard player Simon Lynch.
