The Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ Band
Date: Tuesday, September 19 at 7pm
Location: Baum Walker Hall at Walton Arts Center
Iconic blues legends Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' unite for an historic cross-generational collaboration. Their new album TajMo marks a timely convergence of the talents of two unique American artists, each with their own iconoclastic individual legacies that have extended blues traditions into adventurous new territory. The collaboration brings out the best in both artists, with the pair merging their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music that's firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a playful sense of adventure. The two artists have known each other for decades. Taj even played a role in Keb' getting his first record deal, but TajMo marks the first time they've joined forces in the studio.
