Composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, multi-Grammy Award winner, multi-Blues Music Award winner, Blues Hall of Fame member and Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement award recipient Taj Mahal streaming live to the comforts of your own home from the UC Theatre stage in Berkeley, CA. This will be Taj Mahal’s first ever livestream performance!
Quantifying the legendary Taj Mahal’s musical significance is impossible but people try anyway. He is simply one of the most prominent and influential figures in late 20th Century Blues and Roots music. Using traditional Country Blues as a starting base, Mahal perfumes the pot by mixing a spicy concoction of Afrocentric Roots music, a Blues gumbo kissed by Reggae, Latin, R&B, Cajun, Caribbean rhythms, Gospel, West African Folk, Jazz, Calypso and Hawaiian slack key.
