Event Details

Member only Pre- Sale October 18 | General Public Sale November 1

The world and Africa, in particular, have changed since the founding of pianist/composer Abdullah Ibrahim’s Ekaya ensemble in 1983. The septet, whose name means “home,” presented Ibrahim’s most powerful musical statements during an important time of protest against Apartheid in his native South Africa. Founded in 1983, Ekaya enjoyed an enduring and celebrated bi-annual residence at New York’s famed Sweet Basil for nearly two decades. The “Voice of Africa” has an imposing discography that transcends the cosmopolitan and spiritual musical connections between South Africa and New York City.
