Abdullah Ibrahim is a South African pianist and composer. His music reflects many of the musical influences of his childhood in the multicultural port areas of Cape Town, ranging from traditional African songs to the gospel of the AME Church and ragas, to more modern jazz and other Western styles.
Considered the leading figure in Cape Jazz, Ibrahim is well known for his jazzpiece Mannenberg, a notable anti-apartheid anthem.
Over the decades he has released over 50 albums as a leader or co-leader, and has toured the world extensively, appearing at major venues either as a solo artist or playing with other renowned musicians, including Max Roach, Carlos Ward and Randy Weston, as well as collaborating with classical orchestras in Europe. From 1983 Ibrahim led a group called Ekaya (which translates as "home"), as well as various trios, occasional big bands and other special projects.
In November 2018, Abdullah Ibrahim and Ekaya play the London EFG Jazz Festival. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
