The Nile Project
Bringing together artists from all eleven countries through which the world’s longest river runs
The ambitious Nile Project brings together artists from all eleven countries through which the world’s longest river runs – Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo-Kinshasa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea, South Sudan, Sudan and Egypt.
Sharing the diverse musical traditions of more than 450 million people, since its foundation the Nile Project has attracted more than 60,000 people to 75 concerts and more than 120 participatory workshops held both in the Nile basin and in the United States.
Expect kindred harps and resonant lyres flowing from the river’s sources to its delta united in buzzing polyrhythms and magical songs performed in a dozen different tongues.http://nileproject.org
