Sunday 19:45 - 20:45 Grote Zaal - TivoliVredenburg
Much has been said about Abdullah Ibrahim (formerly Dollar Brand) - the master pianist and Cape Town anti-apartheid activist gracing Le Guess Who? with a spellbinding solo piano performance. Nelson Mandela dubbed him ‘South Africa’s Mozart’; The Guardian, ‘the high priest of international jazz’. But this legend’s music is best experienced rather than read about, as his playing mirrors his impressive musical lifetime better than any write-up ever could. An unforgettable spiritual journey through gospel and jive, American jazz and classical, and sacred and secular is to be anticipated.
