Maurizio Ravalico

Maurizio Ravalico was born in 1963. As a professional percussionist he has and continues to explore the most diverse specialisations of his field, and to establish new relations between them. From funk and pop to Afro-Cuban and Brazilian, and from classical/contemporary music to experimental, improvised and electronic, his list of collaborations, past and ongoing, is probably the best index of his eclecticism and broad range of interests. Among them: Jamiroquai, Paul McCartney, Jesus Alemani, Snowboy, Alex Wilson, Greg Osby, Kaidi Tatham, Dego McFarland, Finn Peters, Dele Sosimi, John Edwards, Steve Beresford, Oren Marshall, Shabaka Huchkins, Andrea Parkins, and the choreographers Lea Anderson, Bill T.Jones, Maja Garc├Ča and Jane Turner.

He co-founded, and presently runs, the Fiium Shaarrk trio, jointly with Isambard Khroustaliov and Rudi Fischerlehner, and has released most of his last decade’s works on the Not Applicable label. He lives and works in London, where he moved from his native Italy in 1991.
