Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya
One of the most charismatic performers in jazz today, South African pianist Abdullah Ibrahim has been at the forefront of the jazz scene for over fifty years.
Abdullah Ibrahim’s music has long tracked the turbulence of his South African homeland’s history, matching its past struggles and current optimism through music of great hope and deeply reflective soulfulness.
Ekaya’s last London performance was at a sold-out Royal Festival Hall concert as part of the 2014 EFG London Jazz Festival, in a year that marked 20 years of a free South Africa.
Part of the EFG Excellence Series.
