[Canceled] Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya
The great Nelson Mandela described Cape Town-born piano legend and 2019 NEA Jazz Master Abdullah Ibrahim as "South Africa's Mozart." A performer, composer, and outspoken chronicler of South Africa's struggle with apartheid, Ibrahim became an international rigure in jazz, whose music has always been a mixtures of influences from jazz and classical to gospel and traditional African music. His international career was jumpstarted by the great Duke Ellington, who saw the young pianist at a performance in Zurich and was instrumental in helping him secure a recording contract.
Stateside performances by Abdullah Ibrahim are a rare occurrence, and these nights promise an unforgettable experience with a living jazz legend.
