Abdullah Ibrahim — Jazz Apartheid, Astrophysics & Ellington

Jazz pianist, composer and political activist Abdullah Ibrahim is a true citizen of the world. He was born and raised in South Africa and has since lived in many countries, spreading the messages of music and freedom wherever he is.

In this rare and wonderful live studio session, Abdullah treats us to solo piano performances of three of his many compositions as well as a wide-ranging and open-hearted conversation with KPLU/Jazz24 host, Mary McCann.
