The Queen of the new Reggae movement brings her very unique mix of contemporary and conscious poetry to the stage. She delivers a mature and sophisticated style combined with deeply moving messages, a true empress in a league of her own.

Born as Janine Elizabeth Cunningham on 23 May 1983 in Montego Bay, Jamaica moved 1991 with her family to Kingston. She has been credited as the creator of the Jazz on Dub genre. Her vocals blend the Jazz melodies of Billie Holiday and Nina Simone with the Dancehall attack of Sizzla Kalongi above the heavy Dub rhythm akin to Augustus Pablo.

Every song contains a message inspired by natural and universal laws. As a cultural activist Jah9 is committed to youth empowerment and nation building through Arts and Culture. She uses her voice to call attention to the abusers of power and also highlights the need for spiritual growth in everyone, including herself.
