Kick off the last long weekend of the summer with us at City Sounds Live in Ogilvy Square. Featuring two incredible performances by Kaspien and Jasmine Trails! This show is free to attend and open to all ages! Bringing a lawn chair is encouraged.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Jasmine Trails was first known for her mesmerizing performances along the Ottawa River, and has since continued to grow into an incredible artist that can hypnotize an entire room. Jasmine Trails performs devotional folk songs from the HeartSpace.
Kaspien is the indie/art rock music pseudonym of Ottawa-born artist Karim Rostom. With a deep passion for storytelling, Kaspien’s first EP, DIVER, explores themes of ocean conservation through the telling of a dark, nautical fable. Pairing striking lyrics with dreamy and emotional melodies, Kaspien’s compositions are earnest and filled with purpose. As a composer, Kaspien has scored multiple short films, as well as an award-winning theatrical dance piece (NUIT, dir. Sophie Goyette-Hamels). Kaspien also enjoys live performance, from putting on concerts alongside other musical creatives to showcasing as Jet Black Weekend in November of 2022. Currently, Kaspien is focusing on the production of a collection of songs, interpreting the experiences of significant individuals in his life to explore the importance of compassion in writing.
