Ibrahim Khalil Shihab, previously known as Chris Schilder, composed some renowned South African music, such as ‘Spring’ or ‘Give a Little Love’ — a song that’s still being played on the radio today.

Here’s a video I worked on with i-Studios that gives a bit of an insight into who Ibrahim is and what to expect on the album.
