Zaki Ibrahim – Cut Loose
Steeped in multi-genre influences, Zaki Ibrahim is a force of musical nature that refuses to be denied. As comfortable on the dance floor as in the living room, and as important as it is entertaining, the music that Zaki Ibrahim creates is moving on all levels. Enter Cut Loose, from Ibrahim’s latest (March 2021) LP, The Secret Life Of Plants. Elements of 70′s styled R&B and pop are everywhere, and yet this is a modern offering, not a retro affair. What those influences contribute, so, too, do modern dance and funk.
Zaki Ibrahim is currently living in Toronto, but is truly a citizen of the world, having lived in many countries and locales around the world in her lifetime. This gives here a unique perspective on the world that seeps into her music. Where most might imagine the world, Ibrahim has actually been there. Her musical influences are the product of that same worldview, and this makes for truly interesting and accessible contributions. Known for taking long absences from releases, Ibrahim makes the wait worth the listener’s time and energy. Patience, it seems, is a virtue!
