A Caribbean voice like a Colombian breeze, singer Stephanie Osorio captivates and enchants with her crystal soul. She poetically celebrates childhood, with all the sweetness in the world for her little girl, on “Como esa mulata.” In Canada—her adoptive country since 2010—she was crowned best “Female Singer of the Year” at the 2022 Latin Awards Canada. This artist with a satiny smooth voice and an ability to bring out the best in Afro-Latin pop definitely has music in her soul, which explains why she is so popular!


On her song “La Blanca,” the divine “morena” sings the praises of her beloved Colombia’s diverse heritage. Playing guitar and maracas, the singer-songwriter charms with her irresistible charisma. Embracing a broad range of genres, Osorio easily moves between cumbia, waltzes and more personal songs. Those who saw her perform at Nuits d’Afrique’s Acoustic Cabaret at Club Balattou, will remember her rendition of the classic  “Amor de mis amores,” which was the inspiration of Piaf’s “La Foule” … absolutely enchanting!

Stephanie Osorio’s voice is a sensory treasure trove so rich that it has even featured on several soundtracks for popular TV series and films. HBO, Amazon and Netflix have all sought out this gem of an artist. Most notably, her voice can be heard on The White Lotus’s main title theme, “Renaissance,” composed by Cristóbal Tapia de Veer, which made a big splash in 2023. Where will her beautiful voice take her next?
