Wells Fargo Jazz

Sponsored By: Wells Fargo

Venue: College of Charleston Cistern Yard

Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes


Distinguished pianist and NEA Jazz Master Abdullah Ibrahim remains at the zenith of his career—recently releasing an acclaimed album, Solotude, and celebrating his 88th birthday while on a world tour. A hero to the anti- apartheid movement, Ibrahim’s first album—released under the name Dollar Brand—was censured by the South African government. Years later, he performed at Nelson Mandela’s inauguration. Join us in welcoming Ibrahim and his band Ekaya to hear a true “modern master—steeped in blues, with a classicist’s touch and poet’s sense of phrasing” (The Wall Street Journal).

Please note that any bag may be subject to search upon entry.
