Jazz Performance

jazz under the stars



Trinidad-based Guyanese singer/songwriter and flautist, Ruth Osman, has been performing since childhood. Her passion for music has led to her appearance in a variety of events - from the church stage to national and international concerts. 
Over the past decade, she honed her skills in the jazz genre, performing primarily with the jazz trio Jacoustik and then with various musicians and bands. In 2013, she teamed up with producer Jason Dasent to record her debut album, Letting Go.
In November 2016, Ruth collaborated with producer Keon Jeffrey of Klassic Music Ent. and a_phake of Future Crab Studios to produce her second album, Elemental.  The album, dubbed ‘a 10-track gem’ by the Trinidad Guardian,includes collaborations with jazz guitarist Theron Shaw, singer/songwriter Collis Duranty and saxophonist Courtney Fadlin.
Armed with a BA in English Literature and a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts and Cultural Enterprise Management, Ruth has also developed a writing career. Her poems, when featured in her performances, add another dimension to her music.
Her inspiration, she says, comes from the desire to ‘help us connect with each other and with the transcendent beauty of the human experience’.
