Taj Mahal has found the blues in sounds across the entire global sonic landscape. A brilliant artist with a musicologist’s mind, Taj has pursued and elevated the roots of beloved sounds with boundless devotion and skill. He has traced origins to the American South, the Caribbean, Africa, and elsewhere, and has created entirely new sounds, over and over again. 
As a result, he’s not only an icon to rock-and-roll legends such as The Rolling Stones, but also a hero to ambitious artists, who are determined to combine sounds that have been mistakenly ostracized from one another. No one is as simultaneously traditional and avant-garde as Taj Mahal.
