Jazz singer Ruth Osman launches first album in Trinidad and Tobago
Ruth Osman has been on the Jazz circuit for a while now; she’s been on stages across the Caribbean, including here in Guyana, making known her prolific skills on the flute, and charming us with the smooth soul and passion that is her voice.
At the Little Carib Theatre in Port of Spain last weekend, she introduced us to “Letting Go”, an album that tells the story of how she is venturing out from the tough sell that Jazz music is in some parts of the Caribbean.
Ruth Osman is no stranger to music. Her father, Raschid Osman, has been on the radio bringing classical music to us since 1979, on his show ‘Mid-Morning Classics’. With that background Ruth developed a love for the arts, particularly Literature and Music and she strongly believes that she was born to positively affect people and society through those mediums.
A platitude that doesn’t extend to Ruth is that she has a big voice and she knows that, and she doesn’t ever presume that she does. She speaks to the vulnerable strains keeping within her range. Her voice brings across a certain luster with streaks of shyness that draws you in, and you just sit up and exclaim that she is nothing but smooth.
The launch of her album was no planned event.
Ruth Osman is scheduled to perform from her new album this September in Guyana.
