In the last decade, the resurgence and popularity of classic roots and dub reggae has ushered in an explosive new wave of stars from Kingston, Jamaica, the genre’s birthplace. Janine Cunningham, aka Jah9, is one such artist. Before rising to international prominence as a musician, the singer-songwriter was well known in her country’s underground poetry scene. Cunningham is also an instructor of Kemetic, Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga disciplines. She regularly holds Yoga on Dub sessions, which combine her two passions in an immersive experience. Jah9 performs with her band, the Dub Treatment, on Thursday, December 7, at Club Metronome in Burlington.
