The Nile Project

January 28 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Conceived by an Egyptian ethnomusicologist and an Ethiopian-American singer, The Nile Project is dedicated to empowering (through music) the diverse—and sometimes conflicted—communities living along the more than 4,000 miles of the Nile River. Consisting of a dozen musicians representing each country bordering the Nile, the musicians speak many languages, use varied rhythms, and play many instruments—from Sudanese harps and Ugandan adungu lyres to Egyptian flutes.
