Raul Midón

One man, one voice, one guitar, but it’s as if a whole orchestra had taken over the stage. A classical guitarist and flamenco virtuoso who can turn his instrument into a kora or a bongo, the New Yorker indulges in everything, singing love songs with a heart-wrenching tone or imitating the sound of a trumpet in masterful vocal improvisations. From Herbie Hancock to Snoop Dogg, everyone has been blown away by this maestro, whose art subtly blends the major American popular music styles (blues and soul, jazz and R&B, etc.). Ten years after his concert in Montreux with Richard Bona, Raul Midón will open the festivities at the Petit Théâtre.
