BIOGRAPHY

Jazz pianist
and singer

Federica Lorusso was born in Bari, Italy in a non-musical environment and since the very beginning of her life she showed a strong artistic inclination, strongly supported by the family.

She started her musical studies as a singer at the age of 12, playing the piano as a secondary instrument. At that time her primary means of expression was the voice. Nevertheless at 17 years old she deepened her jazz piano studies privately, attending lessons with Vito Di Modugno, piano teacher but also one of the best Hammond-organ players in the world, strongly convinced that the piano would have given her more tools of expression.

TESTIMONIALS

What they say

“An incredible swinging, creative and soulful piano player and composer. Lorusso is an amazing talent to keep in mind”

Eric Ineke
Jazz drummer, teacher at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague
“I have had the privilege to have Federica as a main subject student during the last two years of her Bachelor study at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague (2018-2020). She was and is very much steeped in the hard-bop tradition but she showed a great eagerness and willingness to work hard on deepening her knowledge of other directions of jazz and to explore more free, abstract and/or lyrical forms of improvisation. It was a joy to see her fast development in those two years, both technically and artistically. In a short time she had turned into a more versatile musician who likes to challenge herself and who is able move in different- and even contrasting directions without losing her identity as an improviser and composer, always with the jazz tradition in its’ broadest form present. Apart from being a pianist she is also a wonderful singer which, makes her profile as an artist even stronger in my opinion. The snippets I see of her development lately (unfortunately through the Socials only, because of Covid times) show that the line of development I have seen is continuing and extending at the Conservatoire of Amsterdam where she is doing her Master, which of course makes me very curious to hear her live soon again when the times allow it.”
