On Monday June 12 beginning at 7pm, the JAH-N-I ROOTS BAND featuring JahRiffe will bring live world roots reggae inside the UU Meeting House. JahRiffe describes the music as “a vibe, an aura, a frequency that transmits messages through our inner ear and being” and “a message that reminds us who we are.” In addition to a full music set by the band, J1 and H2B international students and workers are invited to perform a few songs too.
