Born and raised in Oakland, CA, Amina Scott is an upright and electric bassist, composer, and arranger. Her interest in music began at an early age when her grandmother began giving her piano lessons. Ever since, her love and passion for music has yet to cease; playing electric bass at the age of twelve and soon playing gigs with local bands in Oakland, where Amina has ties to the Oakland Public Conservatory of Music (OPCM), started by trombonist Angela Wellman to provide arts and music classes to the Oakland community in an economical way.
Through OPCM, Amina was able to take her skills to Lima, Peru to be part a of a group that represented the United States at the first Festival of Music and Dance in the African Diaspora where she played various concerts around Lima and held seminars discussing the music of the African Diaspora in the United States.
In 2017, Amina joined the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra led by Adonis Rose. Now based in New Orleans, Amina leads her own band and has performed with various artists including Dee Dee Bridgewater, Steve Turre, Wessell “Warm Daddy” Anderson, Nicholas Payton, David Murray, Jamison Ross, Joanne Brackeen, Don Vappie, Herlin Riley, Christian aTunde Adjuah Scott, and more.
