Taj Mahal is an honest to goodness legend and visionary whose blues/world music is known for trailblazing exploration of a variety of musical genres. Quantifying Taj’s significance is impossible, but people try anyway. A 2017 Grammy win for "TajMo", his collaboration with Keb’ Mo’, brought his Grammy tally to three wins and 14 nominations, and underscored his undiminished relevance more than 50 years after his solo debut. Blues Hall of Fame membership, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association, and other honors punctuate his résumé. This blues master’s career spans 50+ years and includes influences from around the world, including the West Indies, India, South Asia, Africa, Latin America, and more. This diversification and inclusion has helped to reshape the definition and scope of blues music. He’s released over 25 studio albums, plus live albums and compilations, and has worked with artists as diverse as The Rolling Stones, Ry Cooder, Van Morrison, Jools Holland, Sammy Hagar, Wynton Marsalis, Eric Clapton, and more.
