New and noteworthy is our number three, Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra from Paris, proving once more the popularity of that Latin Tinge that has mesmerized so many music fans before.

Reggae on the river

Reggae on the River! what a joy and a blessing to share,Singer/songwriter/activist Janine ‘Jah9′.

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.

Jah9 developed her sound in the underground poetry/live music scene, but now intends to take her word sounds to the world. Her signature sound has led to collaborations with platinum producer Donovan Bennett of Don Corleon Records, dancehall pioneer Rory Gilligan of Stone Love International, Sheldon Bernard and living legend Beres Hammond of Harmony House Music.search
