Mike Rubini Playing

Hey, I'm Mike!

I come from a little hamlet in Southern Italy called Sovereto. For context, my region is called Puglia: I'm sure you know Italy has the shape of a boot, I'm from the heel!

I've been playing music since I was 4 and was lucky enough to study music with great musicians.

At about 11 years old I fell in love with jazz, listening to Dexter Gordon. Now I'm 30 and on a quest to create more music.

You are very welcome to watch the documentary on the side, which was filmed during a session with my former quartet, called Mike Rubini Extensive Quartet.
