CURRENT “WORLD BLUES TOUR”
“World Blues" is a celebration of American blues music's global influence as seen from three very diverse points of view and three international points of origin. Anchored by iconic blues, roots and world music pioneer Taj Mahal, the show features the soulful South African blues of guitarist/vocalist Vusi Mahlasela and the more modern rock-and-roll perspective of Fredericks Brown, a band featuring Taj's daughter, Deva Mahal, who hails from New Zealand
TAJ MAHAL QUOTE:
“I’ve always explored the connections between different kinds of music, and I never wanted to fall into the trap of complacency. The one thing I've always demanded of the records I've made is that they be danceable, listenable and have diverse rhythms. After 45 years, I’m experiencing another chapter and exploring new connections. In many ways I feel my music is just getting started.”
Taj Mahal has always been interested in agriculture, farming and the earth (if he wasn’t a musician he would have been a farmer). He is an active supporter of environmental charity organizations and events including Farm AID, the Wyland Foundation, and more.
Taj Mahal management is Kevin Morris at Redlight Entertainment and communications director is Ron Roecker of Enfluence Group (ron(at)enfluencegroup.com)
