Description
Description
The Nile flows through eleven African countries, where it is the most important source of drinking water for 437 million people. The Nile Project seeks to resolve conflicts and connect across borders by using music to inspire the people of the region to make sustainable use of the ecosystem, which is both ecologically and politically complex. The group consists of 16 musicians from nine different African countries who bring their national cultural differences into the music, for example through special instruments or rhythms, and thus want to represent the entire region with a ┬╗Nile sound┬ź. Several albums have already been released. In addition, the group has been on tour several times, during which they not only played hundreds of concerts, but also offered gatherings and workshops.
