Federico Malaman

Federico Malaman

Italian bassist, double bassist and arranger. Federico Malaman graduated from Conservatorio E. Dall’Abaco (Verona, Italy) in 2000. At a very young age, he started working with Paolo Belli’s big band as bassist and arranger in important Italian TV shows: “Ballando con le stelle” (the Italian Dancing with the stars), “Telethon”, “Torno Sabato”.
As his career progressed, he started touring with some of Italy’s most renowned artists: Mario Biondi, Elio e le Storie Tese, Antonella Ruggiero and Paolo Belli, among others.
His extraordinary versatility allowed him to gain a foothold as an appreciated and requested musician for sessions; while he simultaneously became a reference in the contemporary jazz-fusion-progressive international scene as a virtuoso on the electric bass.
A creative and tireless musician, Federico is constantly switching among recording studios, international festivals, TV shows and international music trade events.
Federico also has a prominent role on the internet: his astonishing virtuosity, combined with his natural sense of humour and communication skills, etc, have gained him a place among all other web stars, and he is now one of the most followed musicians and teachers on the internet.
Throughout his musical journey, Federico has had the honour to play with top class artists such as George Benson, Solomon Burke, Wilson Pickett, Al Jarreau, Kid Creole, Zucchero, Lucio Dalla, Ron, Renato Zero, Claudio Baglioni, Enrico Ruggeri, Gianni Morandi, Giorgia, Gianna Nannini, Fabio Concato, Virgil Donati, Billy F. Gibbons (ZZ Top), Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick (Incognito).
He also worked for years as bassist and arranger for major Italian television shows - among others, the Italian edition of "Dancing with the Stars" with Paolo Belli's Big Band.
