Raul Midón

Atlantis Basel
Friday, 28 April

Raul Midón has collaborated with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Richard Bona, and Lizz Wright. He is highly regarded for his unique blend of styles, from R&B to jazz to pop and Latin. He acts as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist.
Now the U.S.-American Midón inspires with his 10th album “If You Really Want.” He surrounded himself with the Dutch ensemble Metropole Orkest, a combination of jazz big band and symphony orchestra. The sound worlds of the 52-piece formation put Midón "in a kind of heavenly trance." The musician, who was born blind, explains that the title song speaks out against saying no. "As a blind person, people kept telling me that such and such was impossible. This song is a mantric hymn to possibility." He enjoys playing percussion and guitar while singing along—another of his seemingly endless talents. On this evening, the inventive Midón will captivate the Atlantis audience in a solo performance.
Tickets are CHF 50 in advance and CHF 55 at the door.
