Abdullah Ibrahim

Event information

South Africa's most distinguished pianist and internationally respected master musician, Abdullah Ibrahim is set to perform for two nights only, in Cape Town and Pretoria.

Ibrahim is one of South Africa's greatest jazz icons and returns home to South Africa after a five-year absence to give a series of landmark concerts. The limited events include a highlight in Cape Town where he first professionally performed aged just 16 at the iconic City Hall. The concerts form part of a world tour for him as he performs around the world, visiting cities and cultures that in their time were pivotal in his exiled life.

Throughout his career, he has performed with the greatest names to ever emerge from South Africa's legendary jazz scene including his work with Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba, Jonas Gwangwa, Kippie Moeketsi and many more.

Recently Abdulllah Ibrahim released his latest album. Entitled "3", it's a recording of two sets from London's Barbican Hall. Cleave Guyton Jr (on flute and piccolo), Noah Jackson (on bass and cello) make up the trio and are featured on both sets with Ibrahim. "3" includes the much-loved tracks Nisa, Barakat and many more and comprises both the London performances.

He is also a recipient of many awards and honorary doctorates, spiritually strong as both teacher and disciple, Professor Abdullah Ibrahim is a true inheritor of the ancestral name SENZO.a
