This is a very talented bass guitarist living in London, England called Marta Altesa. She plays the bass guitar with incredible technique and style.
Marta began playing the Bass guitar in 2010 practicing her craft playing over backing tracks of popular songs. She opened a YouTube channel just 2 years later in August 2012 where she videoed herself playing funky basslines. She made quite an impression, not only with music fans but with the online bass guitarist community. Her account quickly grew followers and has now had over 54 million views.
After her success online she was spotted by the 1990s high-flying Jamiroquai an English funk and acid jazz band from London, formed in 1992. She posted on her Facebook page:
“The guys from Jamiroquai saw my YouTube videos and asked me if I wanted to join them in their shows in Chile, Peru and Venezuela. Unbelievable! Definitely a dream come true 🙂 These are some of the pics from those AMAZING 10 days!”
Marta has been inactive for a few years now leaving the bass guitar community wondering where she has gone. Her fantastic videos are still available on YouTube and Facebook.
Life brings many different challenges for everyone and hopefully Martha is doing well and still playing those bouncy basslines on her bass guitar somewhere! The video below is the most recent upload to her YouTube channel in 2017.
A super-gifted musician who has produced lots of great videos with her talents. Maybe in the future, she will return with more, at least for now we have her previous work! If you want to see more from this very talented bass guitarist subscribe to her YouTube channel or follow her on Facebook.
