Composer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Taj Mahal is one of the most prominent and influential figures in late 20th century blues and roots music. Though his career began more than four decades ago with American blues, he has broadened his artistic scope over the years to include music representing virtually every corner of the world – west Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, the Hawaiian islands and so much more. What ties it all together is his insatiable interest in musical discovery. Over the years, his passion and curiosity have led him around the world, and the resulting global perspective is reflected in his music.
"Fans can't say enough about this 27-year-old folk-rock troubadour. Listen to their fond comparisons, likening Bhiman to Randy Newman, Bill Withers and — of course — Bob Dylan, and you might roll your eyes. Actually listen to him sing, however, and your reaction will probably be quite different. Bhiman is the real deal, and he has the talent to go far."
-Jim Harrington, San Jose Mercury
