WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Twenty-five years, four continents, and several generations in the making, Zaki Ibrahim's music is captivating and vibrant. It's thick with poetics, and steeped in a delicious mixture of earnest emotion and humor. She was shaped by the diversity of her Apartheid-era hometown and household , where the lessons of Islam fed into discussions of Buddhism, Sufi philosophies courted drums, and Scottish folk songs intertwined with a rich, epic ancestral history. A fine web of worlds is present in every note, in every tone, in every word, and it is what makes her music both timeless and undeniably fresh.
