RAUL MIDON TRIO
“Midón has a lovely voice, a beautifully controlled tenor that can express anything from tenderness to passion. And the guy can play. His strumming has a flamenco flourish, but after a while, you realize he can do every kind of accompaniment he needs on acoustic guitar.” The Guardian
Singer-songwriter Raul Midón stands at the soulful intersection of R&B, Latin, jazz, reggae and flamenco. His music is a beacon, a rhythmically melodic guide into a world where creative boundaries are erased. His voice sounds like a mixture of Stevie Wonder and Jose Feliciano. His songs flow organically; they are polished and breezy without ever losing the integrity of pure musicianship. Midón, a New Mexico native who’s been blind since infancy, has three released albums to his credit — 2005’s State of Mind, 2007’s A World Within a Worldand 2009’s Synthesis.
