Abdullah Ibrahim

Abdullah Ibrahim is one of South Africa’s most distinguished pianists and a world-respected master musician. He has been dispensing his special brand of musical magic over many decades and remains at his zenith as a musician, composer and a tireless initiator of new projects.

His latest musical offering is "Senzo," a solo programme that, he says, transcends all categories and combines the intimate and the universal in a unique way. When not touring, he divides his time between Cape Town and New York.

In addition to composing and performing, he has started a South African production company, Masingita (Miracle), and also established a music academy, M7, offering courses in seven disciplines to educate young minds and bodies.
