“World Blues” is a celebration of American blues music's global influence, as seen from three very diverse points of view and three international points of origin. Anchored by iconic folk-blues legend Taj Mahal, the evening will also feature the soulful South African blues of guitarist/vocalist Vusi Mahlasela and the more modern rock and roll perspective of Fredericks Brown, a band featuring Taj’s daughter, Deva Mahal, who hails from New Zealand.

Over his five-decade career, the Grammy Award-winning Taj Mahal has evolved into a master of global styles, from Mississippi Delta blues to Hawaiian stylings to African rhythms. In addition to headlining the program, he is also the binding thread throughout this amazing evening of music. Fresh from their sessions together on Vusi's latest album, Taj and Vusi explore the intersection of African and American musical forms; and with Fredericks Brown, it's clear that Taj has influenced yet another generation, taking blues along to new and exciting places.
