A Milan-born, Dublin-dwelling improviser, pianist, keyboardist and composer Dario Rodighiero is a versatile musician. He left Italy in 2014 to pursue his music career in Dublin, where he performs in live shows, regularly collaborates with a wide range of artists, and composes soundtracks and scores for films. After moving to Dublin in 2014, Dario started his own musical project by founding Miss Phoenix and the Jaffa Cakes a trio that makes retro swing versions of modern pop songs. He is also a keyboard player in two other Dublin-based bands. He arranged, recorded and performed several singles in London for Ciara Donnelly, talented Irish singer and songwriter. Passionate about films, Dario found his true vocation when he started composing film scores.
