The Nile Project

The Nile Project

“The Nile Project curates cross-cultural collaborations among musicians from the Nile region. Through these musical dialogues, we aim to foster cultural connections among the people living along the river to help us tackle our water-based environmental challenges. Inspired by Yoyo Ma’s Silk Road Project, Egyptian ethnomusicologist Mina Girgis and Ethiopian-American singer-songwriter Meklit Hadero developed the Nile Project as a platform to spread environmental awareness and inspire change among Nile citizens.”
