Oral History Information
Luigi Bruti was an accordion champion as a teenager and was asked by the Siel Musical Instrument Company to demonstrate their latest products. It was the beginning of his life long career in the music products industry. Luigi became a product engineer helping with several noted instruments, especially when the Siel Company was bought out by Roland, becoming Roland Europe. He helped develop the E-20 for Roland and their V-Accordion series. In 2014, when Roland closed their Italian factory, Luigi and several of his friends formed Dexibell, which provides digital pianos. Along the way, he also formed his own recording studio in Pedaso, Italy called MR Studio, which he opened up for NAMM’s Oral History team in 2018 to conduct a series of interviews!
