Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' Release First Ever Joint Album 'TajMo'

Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' release their first ever album as a duo 'TajMo' (Concord), which features cameos from Bonnie Raitt, Joe Walsh, Sheila E. and Lizz Wright. The album has earned early praise from Billboard and American Songwriter, who dubbed it a "good-time blues album."

'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. The album was self-produced by the duo and was recorded by Zach Allen, John Caldwell and Casey Wasner at Nashville's Stu Stu Studio.

Taj Mahal has been recording and performing his unmistakable blend of blues and world music for over 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 3-time Grammy Winner who has collaborated with everyone from Raitt to Jackson Browne and Buddy Guy.

Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' will embark on a tour as "TajMo: The Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' Band" later this month. Full tour routing below.
