  • Abdullah Ibrahim - The Balance

    3:03

    The Balance combines full-band performances with improvised solo piano pieces. The title, Ibrahim notes, stems from the balance that's part of those different pieces, what he calls a balance of different narratives. For me it's always the idea of telling a story and not just playing notes. There's a variety of songs and each one has a different aspect and different narrative and different pastel colors. We reached that balance within ourselves. He adds that the gentle, atmospheric title track was something I wrote many years ago. We played it in many different formats, but the recording that day in London was what felt like the best way to do it.

  • Abdullah Ibrahim & Johnny Dyani : Namhanje

    17:02

    Recorded in 1979, 'Namhanje' (Today) is a duet featuring Abdullah Ibrahim (piano, voice) and Johnny Dyani (bass, voice). The piece was released as part of an Enja recording title 'Echoes From Africa'.

    Pianist-composer-bandleader Abdullah Ibrahim, formerly known as Dollar Brand, was born in 1934 in Cape Town, South Africa. His music reflects many of the musical influences of his childhood in the multicultural port areas of Cape Town, ranging from traditional African songs to the gospel of the AME Church and ragas, to more modern jazz and other Western styles. Ibrahim is considered the leading figure in the sub-genre, Cape Jazz.

    Johnny Mbizo Dyani (bassist and vocalist) was born in 1945 in Duncan Village, a township of the South African city of East London. In the early 1960s, Dyanni was a member of South Africa's first integrated jazz band, The Blue Notes. In 1964, the band fled South Africa to seek musical and political freedom. Drummer Louis Moholo explained, We were rebels and we were trying to run away from this apartheid thing. We rebelled against the apartheid regime that whites and blacks couldn't play together. We stood up. Johnny Dyani died in 1986 at the age of forty. After his death, the remaining members of The Blue Notes reunited to record a moving tribute album, entitled 'Blue Notes For Johnny'.

    The photographs are from many places in Africa including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mali, Kenya, among others. My appreciation to all the photographers. This video is for educational purposes and to honor the work of the artists.

    4:41

    A short film on the musical philosophy of legendary South African jazz pioneer, Abdullah Ibrahim.

    Directed by Ian Henderson of South African production company THINKFILM, the film lifts a veil on the pianist in a deeply contemplative mood, reflecting on the spirit and source of his music. He has maintained a lifelong dedicated to the Budo martial arts form, training for more than fifty years under a Japanese master, and themes from both music and Budo are deeply intertwined throughout the film.
