Wednesday 20 May
Charismatic South African pianist and composer Abdullah Ibrahim plays a special concert that celebrates his 80th year, bringing together echoes of the township jazz he grew up with, a stunning solo piano set, and the lustrous colours of a brand new trio. There’s nothing in music quite like the atmosphere of an Abdullah Ibrahim concert – a riveting live performer, weaving his own atmospheric spell of heart-stopping melody and delicately propulsive grooves.
Performance runs: c. 75–90 mins (no interval)
