Mahal, Taj, Taj Mahal and the Hula Blues Band: Live From Kauai
February 6, 2015, Kauai, Hawaii: Under a 6000 sq. ft. pavilion, Taj Mahal assembled a score of musicians next to lapping waves of the Pacific. Some were friends from the Hula Blues Band, others, jazz legends who, like himself, are at the top of their game. Two sold-out concerts packed with ecstatic audiences who swayed, danced and rocked out with that sweet, powerful aloha spirit brought yet another wonder. The acoustics of the open tent pitched there next to the ocean, created an extraordinary sound quality. The recordings were terrific! Two CDs are necessary to share the harmony of those events. So what will you hear? Taj's powerful voice, old-school country blues w/ R&B, reggae, calypso, jazz riffs on vibes, steel and flute, rockin' 12 strings and ukulele, 4-part voice harmony, all Hawaiian laced. Taj Mahal is a two-time Grammy winner (nine nominations) who has been active during the last six decades.
