The talented musician who performs under the moniker Taj Mahal was born Henry Saint Clair Fredericks, Jr., in New York City. He made a name for himself by blending traces of world music, specifically African and Caribbean, with defined elements of blues to create a style of music that blatantly harks back to the blues' formative days when the genre was still in its infancy. Releasing his debut album in 1968, Taj Majal has held a dutiful outlook on his music, maintaining a characteristic style that's reliant on a firm belief that the blues was and still is a predominantly African-American art form.
