A Musical Voyage Down the Nile

Conceived by an Egyptian ethnomusicologist and an Ethiopian-American singer, the Nile Project is dedicated to empowering (through music) the diverse—and sometimes conflicted—communities living along the more than 4,000 miles of the Nile River.

But out of this mixture comes melody—just as the Nile Project seeks to turn conflict into harmony.
