Halifax-based Jah'Mila is reggae royalty – she's the daughter of legendary roots reggae guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith, a key player in Kingston, Jamaica's reggae scene. A beacon for positive messages of hope and Jamaican music and culture, she has shared international stages with reggae icons like The Wailers, Groundation, Black Uhuru, and Sly and Robbie.
Being born into the very roots of the reggae family tree, music became an inseparable part of her life from an early age. She bears high respect for the craft and understands the importance of her role in preserving and performing quality live reggae music. Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, she decided to move to Halifax and form her own band after a decade’s worth of trips to visit her mother.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
