Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ have announced a special, full-band tour in support of their first album as a duo, TajMo, out May 5 on Concord.
TajMo: The Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' Band will see the two blues legends share the stage for a once-in-a-lifetime night of music, including stops at Nashville’s storied Ryman Auditorium and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, among others. The full itinerary is below.
TajMo is a historic collaboration between two generations of blues giants, converging their singular talents for the first time ever on an album of original songs and covers, featuring cameos from Bonnie Raitt, Joe Walsh, Sheila E. and Lizz Wright.
The album was self-produced by the duo and recorded by Zach Allen, John Caldwell and Casey Wasner at Nashville's Stu Stu Studio. Below, you can listen to the first single, "Don't Leave Me Here,” written by Taj and Keb'.
Taj Mahal has been recording and performing his unmistakable blend of blues and world music for more than 50 years, winning multiple Grammys and collaborating with the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and more along the way. Keb' Mo', who has often cited Taj as one of his musical heroes, is a three-time Grammy winner who has collaborated with everyone from Raitt to Jackson Browne and Buddy Guy.
