North Shore Center audiences last experienced the brilliance of Taj Mahal in a combined concert with Keb Mo (TajMo); after which, they went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album. The three-time total Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist expanded the borders and boundaries of the blues music genre by sprinkling in his own world music influences that combine the blues sensibility with the music from Africa, the Caribbean, India, Hawaii, the South Pacific, and others.
Taj Mahal doesn’t wait for permission. If a sound intrigues him, he sets out to make it. If origins mystify him, he moves to trace them. If rules get in his way, he unapologetically breaks them. To Taj, convention means nothing, but traditions are holy. He has pushed music and culture forward, all while looking lovingly back.
Admission Fee $45-$65.
