Abdullah Ibrahim and Ekaya
April 29, 2023 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Legendary jazz pianist Abdullah Ibrahim last performed at Middlebury 30 years ago, mere days before the opening of the now Mahaney Arts Center. This time he’ll grace our Robison Hall stage with his band Ekaya, which means “home”—during a weekend that celebrates both South African Freedom Day and International Jazz Day. The face of South-African jazz, Ibrahim (aka Dollar Brand) is known and beloved for his work, Mannenberg, which is regarded as an anti-apartheid anthem.
This concert will also be streamed. Performance subject to change.
