In 2014, some 50 years after moving to Los Angeles to form the band Rising Sons with fellow blues musician Ry Cooder and Jessie Lee Kincaid, Taj Mahal hightailed it to Nashville to receive an honor he called "one of the most powerful and wonderful things that could ever happen in my life."
Celebrating decades of recording and touring that have nearly singlehandedly reshaped the definition and scope of the blues via the infusion of exotic sounds from the Caribbean, Africa and South Pacific, the two-time Grammy winning singer, songwriter, film composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist was feted with the Lifetime Achievement for Performance Award at the 13th Annual Americana Honors and Awards.
Since the release of 2008's Maestro, his most recent studio recording which received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album, Mahal has been busier than ever touring and recording at a whirlwind pace with old friends and fellow musical sojourners. In 2010, after being nominated for
Entertainer of the Year by the Blues Foundation, he joined Jimmy Fallon's Late Night studio band The Roots as a special musical guest on the Rolling Stones classic "Shine a Light." Mahal's career has been full of and defined by colorful twists and turns, unexpected whimsical ventures and a commitment to amuse that has long preferred freewheeling innovation to conformity.
"What inspires me most about my career is that I've been able to make a living playing the music that I always loved and wanted to play since the early 50s," Mahal says. "And the fact that I still am involved in enjoying an exciting career at this point in time is truly priceless. I'm doing this the old-fashioned way and it ain't easy. I work it and I earn it. My relationship with my audience has been fun, with great respect going both ways! I am extremely lucky to have fans who have listened to the music I choose to play and have stayed with me for 50 years. These fans have also introduced their children, grandchildren and in some cases great-grandchildren to this fabulous treasure of music that I am privileged to represent. It's very exciting, to say the least."
