Award-winning Canadian bassist and composer Rubim de Toledo combines the influences of his Brazilian heritage and his dedication to the jazz tradition to create an approach to music that is refreshing and uplifting.

With a musical palette that spans the globe, drawing inspiration from Latin, Caribbean, African, jazz, and contemporary influences, Rubim blends improvisation with a forward-looking traditionalism. His distinctive sound and style as a bassist and composer have earned him acclaim, making him a standout figure in the Western Canadian music scene.

In a notable 2021 milestone, Rubim clinched the Western Canadian Music Award (WCMA) for Instrumental Artist of the Year, adding to his impressive accolades that include a previous WCMA Jazz Artist of the Year win in 2018. The same year saw him nominated for Global Artist of the Year, a testament to the universality of his musical voice.

At seventeen, Rubim began his professional career in Edmonton, performing with Albertan jazz legends Tommy Banks, PJ Perry and Clarence “Big” Miller. Since then, he has evolved into a highly sought-after sideman and a prolific bandleader, releasing seven full-length albums of original compositions and establishing himself as a celebrated Western Canadian musical artist.
