The Nile Project is coming to SoCal

The Nile Project is coming to Southern California for three dates in February.

For millennia, the Nile has nourished lands of human, ecological, and cultural beauty. Connecting the polyrhythmic styles of Lake Victoria and the pointed melodies of the Ethiopian highlands with the rich modal traditions of Egypt and Sudan, the 4,200 mile river yields an enormous range of songs and dances, expressing stories, emotions, and daily life. Bringing together musicians from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda, The Nile Project intertwines these traditions into a unified sound. Says Nile Project Co-Founder Mina Girgis: “In these times when we're scrambling to find new ways to live in harmony with our environment, we find inspiration in our musical ways.” -
