Biography

Born Jean-Pierre Marc-Charles in Detroit, Michigan, Jah-P was introduced to reggae music as a child growing up on the east coast (New York, Miami). Both his parents are Haitian and so being raised in a Caribbean household, Haitian music as well as reggae music were often in the setting. It wasn't until his high school years however that he began playing music. Jah-P is the great, great grandchild of musical genius Occide Jeanty. Occide Jeanty, a classical composer, elevated the musique du palais to such an extent that his music was rated first in the Caribbean and fourth in the American continent.
