The Nile Project

When: Fri., Feb. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Founded in 2011 by Egyptian ethnomusicologist Mina Girgis and Ethiopian-American singer Meklit Hadero, the Nile Project was created “to address the Nile basin’s cultural and environmental challenges using an innovative approach that combines music, education, and an enterprise platform.” The unique sound of the Nile Project is created by a stunning variety of instruments from Nile-basin countries, including the masenko from Ethiopia, the ney and oud from Egypt, and the adungu from Uganda — in addition to violin, saxophone, bass guitar, and six vocalists singing in 11 languages.

Price: Tickets Start at $35
