"...The Nile Project was a superb example of what I call small-world music, of what happens to traditions in the information age." – The New York Times
Conceived by Egyptian ethnomusicologist Mina Girgis and Ethiopian-American singer Meklit Hadero, The Nile Project’s mission is to “educate, inspire, and empower the citizens of the Nile basin to foster the sustainability of the Nile River’s ecosystem.” The Nile Project, consisting of a dozen musicians who hail from every country bordering the Nile River, performing on a range of ancient and modern instruments, vocals, and newly comprised songs, examining the world’s longest river and the people it sustains. The project is in the midst of a three-year-long collaborative tour, appearing at universities, as well as the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and the Smithsonian Institute.
