Federico Aubele is an Argentine singer-songwriter whose music blends a variety of genres and styles: singer-songwriter, electronic.

Born and raised in Buenos Aires, he started playing music at 12. He moved to Berlin in 2002, where he lived for several years. After submitting a demo via email to Thievery Corporation's Eighteenth Street Lounge Music, he was signed quickly to the label, and released his debut album Gran Hotel Buenos Aires,[1] produced by Thievery Corporation, in 2004.[2] In 2006, he played at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. His song "Esta Noche" was featured in the 5th season of Alias (TV series) (episode 8) and Season One episode 10 of Franklin & Bash. "La Esquina" was featured in the 2007 movie The Take, starring John Leguizano. After Berlin, he moved to Barcelona where he began working on his new album, Panamericana (a title to indicate the many musical influences and in part named after the Pan-American Highway), which was released on September 18, 2007, also produced by Thievery Corporation.[2] In 2009 he released Amatoria, a much more mellow album which featured a duet with Sabina Sciubba from Brazilian Girls and a collaboration with Miho Hatori. In late 2010 Federico finished the self-produced Album Berlin 13, which was released in March 2011, and had a much stronger electronic music influence. His latest album is 5, from 2013, which featured the song "Somewhere else", a duet with Jazz chanteuse Melody Gardot. In 2014, Nacional Records produced a 10-year anniversary edition of Federico's debut album Gran Hotel Buenos Aires, with a full North America Tour. He now lives in Brooklyn, NY.
