Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya + Hugh Masekela

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

Feel the potency of South African jazz as two of the country’s most historic musicians – Abdullah Ibrahim and Hugh Masekela – unite for this concert.

Together they revisit the spirit of their 1959 adventures with the Jazz Epistles, the first black South African band to create international waves during the apartheid era.

Ibrahim’s richly melodic sextet Ekaya is joined by Masekela’s effervescent and soulful trumpet and vocals.

This show is part of the EFG Excellence Series.
