Taj Mahal and Vusi Mahlasela to Take Part in the World Blues Tour

Taj Mahal will celebrate the tradition and variation of American blues when he tours across the Country headlining the World Blues Tour this fall. The Harlem born blues guitarist will perform with the Taj Mahal Trio, but he’ll also be accompanied by artists of various blues influences.

The tour will also include South African guitarist/vocalist Vusi Mahlasela, and Fredericks Brown, a modern rock-leaning band that features Taj’s daughter, Deva Mahal, on vocals. Taj Mahal is also familiar with Mahlasela however, having played with him at Nelson Mandela’s HIV/AIDS benefit event before producing Mahlasela’s most recent album, Say Africa.

The tour will begin in California, moving east until it reaches the tri-state area followed by a few other spots on the east coast.
