"It's not just that they didn't want you to record the music, it’s that they didn't want you to think." -Abdullah Ibrahim, Pianist & Composer During the era of apartheid in South Africa, jazz signified a special kind of threat to the white nationalist regime. Not only did its swing and syncopation resemble African rhythm, the music also invited a breeding opportunity for the thoughts it conveyed. In a place fortified by only separation, jazz inspired the mixing of people from all backgrounds and fostered modern ideas. In this animation, the legendary South African pianist Abdullah Ibrahim tells us how jazz and improvisation saved his life. --SIMON RENTNER Hear the radio episode: n.pr/2wRF97g
