Ibrahim in turn began to incorporate African elements into his jazz. Ibrahim briefly returned to South Africa in the mids, having in converted to Islam with the resultant change of name from Dollar Brand to Abdullah Ibrahim.

The pair produced a third album in , titled Underground in Africa , in which Ibrahim abandoned his financially unsuccessful folk-infused jazz of the previous albums. Instead, the new album was a fusion of jazz, rock music , and South Africa popular music, and sold well. After the success of Underground , Ibrahim asked Coetzee to bring together a supporting band for his next recording: the group Coetzee put together included Jansen, as well as others who had not worked on Underground. A few months after the release of "Mannenberg", South African police fired upon protesting children during the Soweto Uprising that began on 16 June ; this event led Ibrahim and Benjamin to publicly express support for the African National Congress , which was still banned at the time.

Starting in , Ibrahim led a group called Ekaya which translates as "home" , as well as various trios, occasional big bands and other special projects.

Ibrahim has written the soundtracks for a number of films, including Chocolat , and 's No Fear, No Die. Ibrahim also took part in the documentary Amandla! Ibrahim has worked as a solo performer, typically in unbroken concerts that echo the unstoppable impetus of the old marabi performers, classical impressionists and snatches of his musical idols — Ellington, Thelonious Monk and Fats Waller. He also performs frequently with trios and quartets and larger orchestral units.

Since his return to South Africa in the early s, he has been feted with symphony orchestra performances, one of which was in honour of Nelson Mandela 's inauguration as President.

Odd, but haunting and beautifully recorded. Posted 17 Oct I gave Zimababwe another spin. This is a great, great record on which Ibrahim also plays soprano saxophone. Some songs are therefore without piano but with TWO horns flute , very remarkable. It starts off with Kramat which I find one of Ibrahim's most beautiful tunes. The album has a real nice relaxed vibe to it with some mesmerising chanting and nice fat "african drums. Posted 20 Oct Stefano Rocco Quartet.
