Raul Midon

doesn’t have to worry comparisons with his idol Stevie Wonder. The blind guitarist uses his strumming, beats, and vocal mouth trumpet sounds to create a stunning one-man performance. His unique style shows influence of virtually every musical genre: jazz, blues, R&B, and folk. No other than the late Arif Mardin produced the second album of the New York-based half Argentinian. And, yes, even Stevie Wonder performed on one of his songs.

5 favorite bands you know personally

Stevie Wonder / India Arie / James Taylor / D’Angelo / Hermeto Pascual

5 favorite books

Yann Martel: «The Life Of Pi». A magical adventerous ride and journey through life. / Thomas Keneally: «The Life Of Pi» / Thomas Merton: «Gandhi On Non-Violence». It's easy to be pessimistic given the state of the world. But I'm inspired by people like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi who had the ability to transform. Collectively we create an enormously powerful force that can change the world and overcome any obstacle. / Stephen King: «The Mist» / Ken Follett: «World Without End». It’s thee sequel to «The Pillars of the Earth» and is also about 1000 pages thick, but worth reading every single page! This time round the story is not about building a cathedral, but a bridge.

5 favorite drinks

Mineral water / Gin Tonic / Water / Cerveza dos equis negra / red wine from a country I don’t want to mention

5 favorite moments in time

any day on the sea / waking up every morning and being aware that life is a miracle to me – how I can travel around the world and doing my music / meeting Stevie Wonder and having him on my debut album singing backing vocals – although I often get compared to him I will never reach his level and still I only got two records out. I’ll be very happy if one of my future albums will ever sound like «Innervisions» or «Talking Book». / rejecting to go to the school for blind children / singing a duet with India Arie («Come Back To The Middle») at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam earlier this year

5 favorite personal belongings

my little bag which contains my other personal stuff / my guitar / lots of pictures I have / my toothbrush with this swing thing / my iPhone

5 favorite things about New York

the lower eastside / 88 Orchard Street (an urban, cosy café) / Broadway with all its noise / the musicians in Central Park / my studio

5 favorite personal victories

be successful on tour / keep my girl’s heart warm / not getting in trouble with police / reach a lot of people / not missing my flight right now
