“Inspired by the fearless truth-telling of Nina Simone, and projecting the ethereal aura of early Erykah Badu.” –Billboard.com 
 
Watch out!  Jamaican roots reggae breakout star Jah9 is coming to the Outer Cape on Friday, June 28!
 
Jah9 is one of the young almost mystical voices of dub, poetry and mostly spirit and has burst out to become a powerful new star of reggae.  Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970’s Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel. Her philosophy is profoundly spiritual, but her style is pure Jazz on Dub.
 
Born Janine Cunningham, Jah9 spent her first formative years on the rural western edge of Jamaica before moving into the city of Kingston. As a country girl transplanted in the city she was suddenly struck by chaos disguised as order in Jamaica’s capital. Highly sensitive to her surroundings, she ventured inward and found an outlet for her feelings in the words that she wrote.
 
Don't miss her debut on the Payomet Stage and your chance to dance til you drop... on Friday June 28 at 8:30 p.m.
