D'origine soudanaise par son père, Ahmed Abdul-Malik a dans son enfance suivi une formation de musicien classique. Il a appris le violon, le violoncelle, le piano et la contrebasse. Après des débuts dans la musique classique, il s'aventure dans le jazz comme contrebassiste dans les années 1940. Il joue, entre autres, dans les orchestre d'Art Blakey (1945-1948), Randy Weston (1957), Thelonious Monk (1957-1958). Passionné par les musiques orientales et africaines, il s'initie à des instruments comme l'oud (luth oriental) et le qanun (sorte de santour égyptien). Il fait d'ailleurs un voyage pour des recherches ethnomusicographiques en Afrique en 1961. Il enregistre comme joueur d'oud dès les années 1950. John Coltrane fera appel à lui pour jouer de cet instrument lors de sessions du << Village Vanguard >> de 1961. Abdul-Malik a enregistré sous son nom, ou comme sideman, des albums très inspirés par les musiques du Moyen Orient. L'<<universalité>> de sa musique a fait que, dans les années 1960, l'<<U.S. State Department >> a organisé pour son groupe une tournée en Amérique du Sud. Abdul-Malik s'est produit aussi en 1972 au Maroc lors du premier << African jazz festival >>
