Sunday on Soulsations, hear music and conversation with Grammy-nominated Raul Midón. His latest release is If You Really Want. The New York Times has called Midón "a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus.” Midón has also been featured as part of NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.
Midón told Soulsations host Carla Eckels, "I've never considered myself a particular kind of musician. I'm sort of put in the jazz category right now but really, I love soul music. I love Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder and Al Green. And I love Latin music. I speak Spanish, so I love Brazilian music, I love flamenco, I love Argentine folk music‚ I love tango. The music that I make is a distillation of everything that I love in music.
