The Taj Mahal Trio

  • SOPAC 1 SOPAC Way South Orange, NJ, 07079 United States (map)

One of the most prominent and influential figures in late 20th century American Blues and Roots music, Taj Mahal is a 2014 recipient of the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award alongside such luminaries as Jackson Browne, Loretta Lynn, and Flaco Jimenez. Though his career began more than four decades ago with American Blues, Taj Mahal has broadened his artistic scope to include music representing virtually every corner of the globe – the Caribbean, Africa, Latin America, Europe, the South Pacific and so much more. Over the years, Taj Mahal’s passion and curiosity have led him around the world, and the resulting global perspective is reflected in his music. What ties it all together is his insatiable interest in musical discovery.
Taj Mahal is a music legend and an international treasure. The two-time Grammy Award-winner emerged from the music scene of the Sixties as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who formed the band Rising Sons with fellow Blues musicians Ry Cooder and Jessie Lee Kincaid. His recent collaborators include The Blind Boys of Alabama, Van Morrison, The Roots, Eric Clapton and The Allman Brothers Band.
