Take in vibrant, joyful and original music combining the traditions of 11 countries up and down Africa’s diverse Nile River basin. This “committed, euphoric international coalition” (The New York Times) of performers transcends language and cultural barriers to unite in harmony.

"The Nile Project is the performing side of an effort that also includes education in music and environmental issues, raising awareness of the entire Nile basin as an ecosystem. With such vibrant music, the good intentions were a bonus; the Nile Project was a superb example of what I call small-world music, of what happens to traditions in the information age." -Jon Pareles, The New York Times
