To Taj, convention means nothing, but traditions are holy. He has pushed music and culture forward, all while looking lovingly back. "I just want to be able to make the music that I'm hearing come to me - and that's what I did," Taj says. The 76-year-old is home in Berkeley, reflecting on six decades of music making. "When I say, 'I did,' I'm not coming from the ego. The music comes from somewhere. You're just the conduit it comes through. You're there to receive the gift." Read More

Preserving her musical past Sona Jobarteh innovates to support a more humanitarian future. The spirit of Sona Jobarteh's musical work stands on the mighty shoulders of The West African Griot Tradition; she is a living archive of the Gambian people. With one ear on the family's historic reputation, one on the all-important future legacy and her heart in both places, she is preparing a place today for the next generation. Her singing and Kora playing while fronting her band, spring directly from this tradition. The extent of her recognition today is evidenced by more than 23 + million watchers on YouTube and considerable numbers on other digital platforms. All this despite singing in her native languages and keeping to her own path within the music industry.
