Win tickets to Raul Midón and Alex Cuba live in concert

The concert is on Thursday, 3 November.

An evening of soul, jazz, and Latin pop sounds with two dazzling singer-songwriters and instrumentalists, Raul Midón and Alex Cuba awaits for five lucky winners, who could win two tickets each.

The solo concert will be outdoors and includes collaborative sets. The program also includes an opening set by the UAE’s own Abdullah al Shamsi.

Alex Cuba’s sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks, and powerful guitar riffs relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape. The winner of the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album and multiple Latin Grammys, his musical evolution for years was all about searching for the simplicity and soul in Cuban music – taking apart the complex arrangements, mixing it with North American influences, adopting the melodic simplicity of pop music, looking to Cuban folk traditions for inspiration.

Raul Midón is a Grammy-nominated contemporary singer/songwriter whose impassioned acoustic guitar playing — which traverses pop, jazz, soul, urban, cumbia, and flamenco — has garnered as much attention as his smooth singing and sophisticated writing. Blind since birth, Midón is known for his signature combination of silky voice and percussive guitar. His breezy style has endeared him to jazz and pop audiences and his sweet, silky tenor delivery and poignant, emotional phrasing have been influenced by everyone from Bill Withers and Michael Franks to Donny Hathaway and D’Angelo.
