Guitarist and vocalist Raul Midón has earned worldwide acclaim for his percussive guitar and his silky voice. Blind from birth, Midón has recorded 11 studio albums as a solo artist and lived a life devoted to beating the odds and shattering stereotypes. His playing is a syncopated wonder in which bass, harmony, and melodic lines fly from the fretboard in a way that belies the fact that all the music is being produced by just two hands. The New York Times described him as “a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus.” Dubbed “an eclectic adventurist” by People magazine, Midón has collaborated with legendary artists such as Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, and Bill Withers; contributed to records by Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg; and performed on the soundtrack of Spike Lee’s She Hate Me. NPR referred to his discography as “a streak of records that cross boundaries with ease and head-turning musicality.”
