This world-renowned musician, easily the most prominent contemporary pianist of South Africa, started his revolutionary Jazz Epistles ensemble in 1959. Ibrahim’s sound is a melting pot of cultural influences: gospel melodies and African-American tradition, as well as the typically American cool jazz, township jive, and European classical music.

In 1974 he recorded Mannenberg, which soon become a national anthem of sorts for the black people of South Africa. Nelson Mandela himself welcomed him again in his native country in 1990s.
