Raul Midon with special guest Master Kong Way Comes to Target ® Free Thursdays, April 18 at 7:30pm


“A three-way fusion of Stevie Wonder, Bobby McFerrin and Jose Feliciano,” is how The New York Times described the singer/songwriter Raul Midón. New Mexican born New Yorker, blind since birth, Midón combines a vibrant sound steeped in old-school soul, with Latin and jazz influences to create timeless, classic pop songs. Preceding Midón’s performance, Kong Nay, a virtuoso of the chapei dong veng a two-stringed, long-necked guitar, who is often referred to as “the Ray Charles of Cambodia,” will give a sneak preview of his April 20 performance at Asia Society. The charismatic blind musician is renowned throughout his homeland and is one of only a small number of master artists who survived the genocide under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. The concert is part of Season of Cambodia, the citywide New York festival (April 6-May 31) celebrating Cambodian arts, culture and humanities. For information, visit: www.seasonofcambodia.org.
