The World Blues Tour: Taj Mahal & Guests

October 24, 2013 @ 7:30 pm
207 McCain Auditorium
Manhattan, KS, 66506
United States

The World Blues Tour is a celebration of American blues music’s global influence. Anchored by iconic folk-blues legend Taj Mahal, the evening also will feature the soulful South African blues of guitarist/vocalist Vusi Mahlasela and the modern rock and roll perspective of Fredericks Brown, a band featuring Taj’s daughter, Deva Mahal.

Over his five-decade career, the Grammy Award-winning Taj Mahal has been a master of global styles, from Mississippi Delta blues to Hawaiian stylings to African rhythms. In addition to headlining the program, he also is the binding thread throughout this extraordinary evening of music. Fresh from their sessions together on Vusi’s latest album, Taj and Vusi explore the intersection of African and American musical forms. Fredericks Brown’s talent makes it clear that Taj has influenced yet another generation, taking blues to new levels of excitement and innovation.
