The Nile Project: Pan-African Music Concert

Venue: Bing Concert Hall, Stanford main campus

The Nile Project is a collective of top musicians from Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan and eight other Nile River Basin nations who have come together to create a uniquely East African sound and engage in a transnational conversation about the ecological sustainability of the river that's essential to the lives of 450 million people. A pan-African percussion section drives the potent music of the Nile Project, a group focused on the ecological sustainability of that critical, history-rich waterway. Playing ancient and modern instruments, the group includes the beguiling voice of Ethiopian-American singer Meklit Hadero.
