Federica Spreafico, Ciqui, was born in Milan in 1989. She began her singing studies at fourteen years old, approaching the voicecraft technique. The turning point of her vocal training took place in the USA where she moved at the age of sixteen to study. Guided by the vocal coach Sara Carpenter she approached gospel and blues undertaking an intense course of studies that took her to perform in both musical and sports events (singing the American national anthem). She also had great results in several contests (”Minnesota State high school league” - first place, “Jackson County’s Solo/Ensable contest” - best in site, “Life Long Melody Award” - first place).
In 2012 she graduated in Foreing Languages and Literatures in Bergamo. Since 2012 she is also vocal coaching at “Futuro Musica”, a music school in Lecco, Italy.
