Nelson Mandela RIP

This week witnessed the passing of a true hero and a person who changed the world for the better.

I’m listening to Abdullah Ibrahim’s Mannenberg is Where It’s Happening and you can too courtesy of artist4africa on YouTube, in a film which Shows Abdullah Ibrahim’s visit to Robben Island:-

A beautiful track, wonderfully well played, ideal for quiet reflection while still remaining joyful.

Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela

artist4africa says:-

For the first time ever, Abdullah Ibrahim, formally known as Dollar Brand, went to Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned. All forms of music were banned. A lawyer smuggled one of Abdullah’s songs into the control room, blocked the doors and played it over the loud speakers. Mandela’s first sound of music in decades.
