For three years now, The Nile Project has been busy showing the world the unsung benefit of regional cooperation: great music. This sprawling coalition of African artists hailing from the eleven countries that make up the Nile Basin blends the region’s varied instruments, languages, and musical traditions to create something as fresh as it is cohesive.
Their sound reflects the diversity of the countries they hail from, fusing everything from African harps, a wooden flute, an oud, a thumb piano, and a saxophone.
The Nile project isn’t just about the unique acoustic potential of regional collaboration, its about education and raising awareness of the entire Nile Basin as an ecosystem. The Nile Projects is inspiring a larger conversation about stewardship of the Nile River and the basin’s fragile ecosystem.
The Nile Project has toured Africa twice, The United States once–including a performance at Lincoln Center and The United Nations, and has been covered by The New York Times, NPR, The Guardian, and the BBC.
