Neighborhood Concert: Abdullah Ibrahim and Friends

Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
Pianist and composer Abdullah Ibrahim’s unique soulful style is rooted in classic jazz, but is also inspired by gospel and the traditional music of his native Cape Town. Ibrahim’s commitment to jazz and African music rings out in every note he plays and through his M7 Academy, a foundation committed to inspiring excellence in young people through music. In celebration of his 80th birthday, Ibrahim performs with members of his trio, septet Ekaya, and big band in a concert filled with gorgeous melodies and sparkling colors.
