Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ have shared “All Around The World,” the second preview from their forthcoming and first-ever collaborative album TajMo, due out May 5 on Concord. The uplifting track, written by the duo, is a plea for solidarity during polarized times.
TajMo marks a timely convergence of the talents of two unique American artists who’ve already built iconoclastic individual legacies that have consistently expanded and extended American blues traditions into unexpected new territory. The collaboration brings out the best in both artists, with the duo merging their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music that’s firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a playful sense of adventure.
Taj and Keb’ will hit the road together this year for an extensive tour, with highlights that include shows at the Hollywood Bowl in LA (June 10), Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London (July 7), the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville (Oct 7) and much more. Check HERE for full tour routing and schedule.
