That's one of the things that makes this a phenomenally exciting time for the genre. For instance, MTV Iggy recently highlighted Jah9, a female reggae artist from Jamaica and a member of the roots reggae revival scene. Jah9 has coined her music "jazz on dub," mixing in sounds from American jazz and '50s blues with reggae.
MTV predicts she may soon be due for a blow up similar to what fellow Rastafarian reggae artist Chronixx experienced recently. His album caught the ear of big names in the industry when it vaulted to the top of the Billboard Reggae charts, after he performed his song "Here Comes Trouble" on The Tonight Show earlier this year.
