An Evening with Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya

February 21 | 8:00 pm
Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark Street
Portland, OR 97214 United States

The world and Africa, in particular, have changed since the founding of pianist/composer Abdullah Ibrahim’s Ekaya ensemble in 1983.

As a group, the band is heavily influenced by artists like Kneebody, Jaga Jazzist, and Bonobo, but the broader range of styles and influences in the music can be attributed to the fact that everyone in the band is a composer and approaches writing from a very different place.
