The Nile Project
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. Californians concerned about water-related issues will relate to these musicians from Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, and other Nile River Basin lands, who sing their new songs about the world’s longest river and the people it sustains. Playing ancient and modern instruments, the group includes the beguiling voice of Ethiopian-American singer Meklit Hadero.
