Composer and multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal is a two-time GRAMMY® winner and one of the most influential American blues and roots artists of the past half-century. In his never-ending exploration of the complex origins and underpinnings of American music, he has forged a four-decade career by gathering and distilling countless musical traditions from a range of geographical and cultural sources: the Mississippi Delta, the Appalachian backwoods, the African continent, the Hawaiian islands, Europe, the Caribbean and so much more. Shemekia Copeland’s passion for singing, matched with her huge, blast-furnace voice, gives her music a timeless power and a heart-pounding urgency. Her music comes from deep within her soul, influenced by her father - late Texas blues guitar legend Johnny Clyde Copeland - and from the streets where she grew up, surrounded by the everyday sounds of the city – street performers, gospel singers, blasting radios and bands in local parks.
