Taj Mahal has been playing his own distinctive brand of music (variously described as Afro-Caribbean blues, folk-world-blues, hula blues, folk-funk and a host of other hyphenations) for more than four decades. Over the years, he has had the opportunity to hear, meet and play with such blues legends as Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Louis and Dave Meyers, Sleepy John Estes and more. While Taj's music has always been well received, popular culture finally caught up to him the '90s and 2000s. In 1997, he walked away with the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album for Seor Blues, and he captured a second Grammy for 2000's Shoutin' in Key. In all, he has garnered nine Grammy nominations during his career.
