Singer, guitarist and songwriter Raúl Midón will be performing on November 1 at TEMPO – Teatro Municipal de Portimão.
He combines a distinct voice, strumming, beats and vocal mouth trumpet sounds to create a one-man performance.
His unique style shows influence of virtually every musical genre which came before him, including jazz, blues, R&B, and folk. Midón is blind from infancy.
Midón began his career as a session singer for numerous Latin recording artists, including Shakira, Alejandro Sanz, Julio Iglesias and José Feliciano.
After touring with Shakira, he decided to pursue a solo career and moved to New York City, where he focused completely on this with the exception of working with producer and renowned DJ Little Louie Vega.
He wrote and recorded several songs, including Cerca De Mi with Louie and his production team under the name Elements of Life.
Midón’s album State of Mind was released in May 2005. The album features a guest performance with Stevie Wonder, one of his idols, another one with Jason Mraz, and a song written in tribute to Donny Hathaway entitled Sittin’ In The Middle.
In March 2009, Midón began working with Grammy Award winning producer Larry Klein on his album Synthesis.
