Primary Instrument: Piano

Born: March 10, 1979

Juan Andrés Ospina has become one of the most active Colombian musicians of his generation in the international scene. His exceptional multi-faceted career has led him to become an internationally in demand producer, arranger, pianist and composer, orbiting primarily between New York City, Europe and his native Colombia.

Among his most recent work as a producer, arranger and pianist is Portuguese singer Luisa Sobral’s cd “The Cherry on my Cake” (Universal Music, 2011), which received a Golden Disk Award in Portugal at only 6 months of its release. Currently he is finishing the production of another internationally acclaimed jazz singer from Portugal, Sofia Ribeiro, with whom he performed in prestigious jazz festivals such as Jazz Espoo (Espoo, Finland), Silesian Jazz Festival (Katowice, Poland), Jazz a la calle (Mercedes, Uruguay) and important jazz clubs like Jazz Station (Brussels, Belgium) and Jamboree (Barcelona, Spain). He has also recorded and toured with international artists such as Colombian singer/songwriter Marta Gómez, Colombian super pop star Fonseca, and Swiss jazz vocalist Sylvie Bourban, and worked as an arranger for the 2007 Latin Grammys Ceremony held in Las Vegas (US)....

“Juan Ospina’s irresistible new CD BBB: Barcelona, Bogotá, Boston, is a landmark. It stands with authority as a milestone pointing back and forward (…) It marks without debt the ‘arrival’ of Juan Ospina as a young master already having a uniquely valuable impact on listeners, professional musicians and ambitious artists of all kinds.” (Christopher Lyndon, Radio Open Source)

“Juan’s talent and creativity are simply extraordinary” (Oscar Stagnaro, Grammy awarded bass player)
