Ruth Roshan began learning the mandolin at the age of five, and has played professionally since she was a teenager. Whatever the style or tempo, Ruth plays her mandolin with a great deal of musicality and style. She is also an accomplished singer with a gentle and beautiful voice.
Her love of tango began when she heard this style of music as a child and when Ruth was introduced to live Argentinean tango in Paris at the age of 23, she was hooked. She has written and recorded 3 albums of tango inspired songs and instrumentals with her quintet, Ruth Roshan & Tango Noir. The most recent of these, Stories of Love & Regret achieved CD of the week or equivalent on 8 Australian radio stations.
Ruth is also known as one half of the duo Nougat, and along with guitarist Tania Ravbar she toured regularly for Musica Viva, playing original pieces and fresh arrangements of music from around the world, particularly from Spanish and South American traditions.
Ruth has performed as principle mandolinist at Orchestra Victoria, performing with the Australian Opera and Australian Ballet where mandolin is required. She has performed with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (The Godfather) and performed and recorded with ANAM Orchestra as a guest musician. She has also performed and recorded with international harpsichordist, Elizabeth Anderson, the Victorian Opera Chamber Orchestra, Melbourne City Opera Orchestra and other ensembles.
Ruth has travelled to St Petersburg to perform her compositions with Russia’s Remolino Ensemble. In June 2013, Ruth performed in Switzerland with guitarist Antonio Malinconico and created several radio recordings in England with local instrumentalists. Tango Noir toured Italy as a trio, with Amir Farid and Phil Carroll.
