Concert Hall

Travel the musical globe with the legendary Taj Mahal as he takes the stage along with some friends and family to perform an evening of soulful, blues-based, world music. Grammy Award-winning composer, instrumentalist, and vocalist Taj Mahal began his career performing the blues, but soon branched out to explore the music of the world, giving his music a global perspective. For this amazing concert he is joined by African folk-singer, poet-activist Vusi Mahlasela who is known in his native South Africa as "The Voice" for the support he gave to the anti-apartheid movement. Rounding out the bill is Mahal's daughter, Deva Mahal, and her band, whose music is a fusion of soul, blues and the organic sounds of New Zealand. All music lovers should experience this night of inspired music making. "[Taj Mahal]…has about the deepest and widest roots of any popular music performer today." (The New York Times)
