Abdullah Ibrahim welcomes musicians from his youth and the original Jazz Epistles band to reimagine music for his Ekaya Chamber Ensemble. This historic music was almost lost forever — only 500 copies were made in 1959, buried, and rediscovered decades later after the tyranny of apartheid in South Africa. Please note: There has been a change to the performers for this concert. Hugh Masekela, originally scheduled for this concert, passed away and will be replaced by former Count Basie Orchestra trumpeter Freddie Hendrix.
