In the artist's words:

"Rubin elicits the most beautiful tones from the guitar" wrote the Diario de Jerez back in 1992.

Then as now, the internationally recognized flamenco guitarist and singer from Jerez de la Frontera inspires his listeners with filigree chords, artful runs and fortissimo accentuated individual notes on the guitar. With his deep, throaty, expressive and well-tempered voice, he reveals a very intimate approach to flamenco singing and his unique vocal techniques.
