World-renowned composer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist Taj Mahal is one of the most prominent and influential figures in late 20th century blues and roots music. In his more than four-decade career, Taj Mahal’s musical range touches nearly every corner of the world and is driven by an insatiable interest in musical discovery.
Vusi Mahlasela is simply known as “The Voice” in his native South Africa, where he is celebrated for his distinctive, powerful voice and his poetic, optimistic lyrics. Mahlasela’s songwriting, with themes of forgiveness, reconciliation, and the struggle for freedom, have been an inspiration to many in the anti-apartheid movement.
From the beautiful islands of New Zealand comes Fredericks Brown, the musical collaboration of vocalist Deva Mahal and keyboardist Steph Brown. Renowned for their energetic live shows, rich harmonies, and beautifully crafted songs, Fredericks Brown’s music fuses the cultural heritage of both musicians: the rich soul and blues roots of Deva Mahal, Taj Mahal’s daughter, and the organic Pacific New Zealand sound of Steph Brown.
