New York based vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Raul Midn has always experienced the world differently than most. Born prematurely in a rural hospital in Mexico, he and his twin brother, Marco, were accidentally blinded as infants after spending time in an incubator without eye protection. Midn followed a musical path inspired by his father, a professional Argentine folkloric dancer. Midn studied jazz at the University of Miami and after graduating became a backup singer, working primarily in the Latin-pop world for such artists as Julio and Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, Ricky Martin and Alejandro Sanz. In 2002, Midn walked away from his lucrative work as a back-up singer to pursue a career as a solo artist. Since striking out on his own Midn has produced three solo albums and received accolades for his music’s heady fusion of old-school soul, Latin, jazz and timeless singer/songwriter folk-pop.
