Georgia Anne Muldrow, raised in Los Angeles but relocated in New York, debuted with the EP Worthnothings (2004) and with the 21-song Olesi - Fragments Of An Earth (Stones Throw, 2006) in a highly innovative style of soul, jazz, funk and hip hop music that was both intimate, lush and irregular. After the even more experimental (and funky) EP Sagala (2007), credited to Pattie Blingh and the Akebulan Five, she delved into another tour de force, Umsindo (SomeOthaShip Connect, 2009), whose 24 jarring electronic songs were sonic equivalents of neurotic implosions.

Despite being immediately recognized as one of the most striking voices of neo-soul of the new century, she lost her inspiration after that second album.

Early (Animatedcartunes, 2009) collects rarities. Kings Ballad (Ubiquity, 2010) sounded like a hodgepodge of half-baked ideas, marketed as a tribute to Michael Jackson. As Jyoti she released Ocotea (2010), an album of electronic jazz a` la Annette Peacock and Paul Bley. SomeOthaShip (Connect, 2010), credited to her and her husband Declaime (Dudley Perkins), mainly collected collaborations with stars of the hip-hop world. The creative fatigue spilled over into Owed To Mama Rickie (Animatedcartunes, 2011) and the instrumental Vweto (Mello Music, 2011), both of which lacked the ambition and the depth of her first two albums.

She also sang on Into the Wind (2010), a collaboration between Chinese guzheng player Bei Bei and producer Shawn Lee.

Seeds (Some Otha Ship Connect, 2012) was a collaboration with producer Madlib.

Jyoti returned with the rather fragmented Denderah (2013) and the jazz ballads of Mama You Can Bet (2020).

The mediocre rap album A Thoughtiverse Unmarred (2015) was produced by Chris Keys.

Overload (2018) contains the political anthem Blam and Overload.

VWETO II (2019) and VWETO III (2021) were instrumental hip-hop albums displaying her beatmaking skills.

Zhigeist (2022) was a collaboration with Detroit's rapper•Jason "Elzhi" Powers.
