The Creation of Flamenco Bassoon. An Interview with Niño Rubén.



We had the chance to talk with Rubén, a Spanish bassoonist artistically known as Niño Rubén (translated into English: Child Rubén). He is the creator of the flamenco bassoon and one of the most famous bassoonists despite his young age. Rubén recently shared his story through a documentary called El Nacimiento del Fagot Flamenco (The Birth of the Flamenco Bassoon), available on his official YouTube channel. In this interview, we try and understand his unique style of music performed on the bassoon and where his inspiration came from.
