Tajmo : Taj Mahal & Keb'Mo' Band
Both have the blues running through their veins: this is the style in which they feel the greatest freedom.
Taj Mahal travels through time with the curiosity and talent that make him an emblematic divinity, a cultural exception. Here he passed by on the outskirts of gospel, and there he is on the verge of reggae... But the blues are ever present in his heart and soul. In the course of his prolific career, Taj Mahal has completed 35 albums ranging from fusion to blues, zydeco, Caribbean, African and Indian music, music from the South Pacific and other musical elements gleaned from his travels around the globe. He is one of the last giants of blues, putting his powerful voice and authentic guitar play at the service of this musical current.
Songwriter Keb' Mo' sings in a contemporary style marked with touches of soul and folk, accompanying himself on acoustic or electric guitar. He has the nonchalant air of grand stars who play above the fray. But make no mistake: his music blows you away. Keb' Mo' has also distinguished himself on screen, thanks to films such as those by Martin Scorsese and Wim Wenders dedicated to blues.
