Chaka Mater Laka was a musician who performed in the song "Batuu Boogie" alongside MW-59. The duo's song was featured by the droid DJ R-3X in Oga's Cantina, which was located in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu, around the year 34 ABY. The cantina playlist was broadcast over the local radio station, BSO 401.72, which could be heard in the refreshers near the Droid Depot store, inside the Black Spire Station garage, inside the market at Merchant Row, and inside Docking Bay 5 at the local spaceport.

Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Cataclysm to 34 ABY. Thus, the events in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, including the those in Oga's Cantina, can be dated to around the year 34 ABY.
