Abdullah Ibrahim

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

a close up black and white photo of Abdullah Ibrahim

Mesmerising South African jazz pianist Abdullah Ibrahim performs an intimate and atmospheric solo show.

Taking us on a journey through a lifetime of musical experience – a sacred and secular melting pot of gospel and jive, American jazz and classical music – he skilfully weaves his influences into free-flowing piano inventiveness. His is a distinctive brand of exquisite, meditative tranquillity: heart-stopping melodies that combine with a powerful spirituality. Ibrahim’s music has long tracked the turbulence of his homeland’s history, matching its past struggles and current optimism through music of great hope and deeply reflective soulfulness.

Produced by Serious, part of EFG London Jazz Festival
