Azania Mosaka on Friday had a frank conversation with the man Nelson Mandela once described as "better than Bach and Beethoven" - Abdullah Ibrahim.
Listen to the conversation below:
People are the same everywhere in the world - they have the same heartbeat, the same breath... so in terms of our musical expression this is what we try to touch within ourselves, look deep within ourselves... our relationship with nature... the rivers, mountains and the change of seasons.— Abdullah Ibrahim, jazz musician
The principle of improvisation is an idea of creating or doing something at a specific moment in time with no thought. You have to be totally fearless to take that path.— Abdullah Ibrahim, jazz musician
