Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo have added new U.S. dates to their TajMo tour. Their first ever album as a duo, TajMo,won a GRAMMY in the category of Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards in January 2018.
TajMo, released on May 5, 2017 via Concord Records, marks a once-in-a-lifetime convergence of the talents of two unique American artists who’ve already built significant individual legacies that have consistently expanded and extended American blues traditions into astonishing new territory. The collaboration brings out the best in both artists, who merge their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music that’s firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a restless, spirited sense of adventure.
TajMo debuted at #1 on the Current Blues chart and held that position for four weeks.
Taj Mahal has been recording and performing his unmistakable blend of blues and world music for over 50 years, winning multiple GRAMMYS and collaborating with the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and more along the way. Keb’ Mo’, who has often cited Taj as one of his musical heroes, is a 4-time GRAMMY Winner who has collaborated with everyone from Raitt to Jackson Browne and Buddy Guy. Keb’ has also performed at multiple Crossroads Guitar Festivals and at In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues in 2012.
Taj and Keb’ will hit the road extensively in support of TajMo
