“Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.”
― Frank Zappa

‘Taj Mahal is one of the most prominent and influential figures in the late 20th century blues and roots music as acomposer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist.
He has broadened his artistic scope over the years to include music representing virtually every corner of the world – west Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, The Hawaiian islands, and so much more. What ties it all together is his insatiable interest in musical discovery. His global perspective is reflected in his music’.

Taj Mahal was in Aspen for the AREDAY Conference in August 2013.
He stopped by the studios of Aspen Public Radio for an interview with Andrea Young.
