Don’t miss this collection of lively, original reggae tunes, along with Jamaican and African folk songs performed by Aaron Nigel Smith.


Smith is an educator and established musician known for the Emmy Award–winning PBS show Between the Lions. In 2009, Smith and his wife, Diedre, formed the nonprofit One World Chorus with the goal of building bridges internationally through choral singing. Currently, there are choruses involved in Portland, LA, New York, Kenya, and Jamaica. Smith has produced and released five albums for children, including 1World Children’s Chorus: Celebrating Bob Marley in collaboration with Ziggy Marley’s Tuff Gong Worldwide label. He released his most recent album, In Our America, this past March in partnership with Tuff Gong International.

Smith is delighted to return to his former hometown of LA for a performance of some of his best-known children’s songs. His reggae rhythms encourage families to sing, dance, and play together. At the Skirball Smith’s show will also feature student performers from the Center St. School Choir under the direction of Rebecca Wright.
