Abdullah Ibrahim returns to Leeds for a special concert to celebrate his 80th year. Casting his own atmospheric spell of heart-stopping melodies and delicately propulsive grooves, Ibrahim plays music from across his vast musical landscape of knowledge and technique.
The legendary South African pianist and composer occupies a central position in his country's music history as an exile from apartheid and politicised pioneer of Township and Cape Jazz.
There’s nothing in music quite like the atmosphere of an Abdullah Ibrahim concert.
