Ramah Jihan Malebranche is a Haitian immigrant with interdisciplinary talents spanning music, visual arts, education, and the accompanying project management skillsets. His music is a lush yet austere brand of chamber pop; honest and sentimental while set in a mature voice.

Ramah is currently building the newest iteration of Wooden Rings, teaching and building a media center to record the voices of the most vulnerable and marginalized black and brown youth on the westside of Chicago.
