The Nile Project

T01476593690
Inspired by Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Project, Egyptian musicologist Mina Girgis and Ethiopian-American singer Meklit Hadero created this concert experience to raise awareness of the cultural and environmental challenges along the world's longest river. In the collective's collaborative compositions, resonant harps and lyres from up and down the river have learned new musical modes, combining the polyrhythmic styles of Lake Victoria and the pointed melodies of the Ethiopian highlands with the rich modal traditions of Egypt, and Sudan, that support vocals in more than ten languages.
