Abdullah Ibrahim

Abdullah Ibrahim

Real Name:
Adolphus Johannes Brand
Profile:
Legendary South African jazz musician (mostly piano and saxophone), born as "Adolphus Johannes Brand" in Cape Town in 1934.

He was given the "Dollar" nickname due his regular purchases of jazz LPs from US-American soldiers as a youth, and when he converted to Islam in 1968 he changed his name to Abdullah Ibrahim -- although he continued to perform and record under the Dollar Brand monicker for some years thereafter.

His "Mannenberg" composition from 1974 is widely considered to be a seminal piece of South African heritage and, at times, been dubbed an unofficial South African anthem. In 2009 Mr. Ibrahim was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Music from the University of the Witwatersrand.
