    Rockport Music presents: Raul Midón

    Vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Raul Midón is a soulful tenor with a dazzling percussive guitar style. His syncopated, flamenco- and jazz-infused approach creates bass, harmony, and melodic lines that emanate from the fretboard in one slap-happy storm.

    Vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Raul Midón is a soulful tenor with a dazzling percussive guitar style. His syncopated, flamenco- and jazz-infused approach creates bass, harmony, and melodic lines that emanate from the fretboard in one slap-happy storm. He also loves to get the crowd going with improvised bebop “trumpet” solos performed entirely with his mouth. Once a sought-after Latin-pop backup singer who worked with such artists as Julio and Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin, Midón’s solo career has garnered rave New York Times reviews for his Carnegie Hall performance and regular gigs on Leno’s Tonight Show. His third album is entitled “Synthesis.”

    “… a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice
    into a chorus…” -Stephen Holden, New York Times
