The Nile Project – an inspiring ensemble of 13 African musicians touring the United States to call attention to water quality issues at home and around the world – returns for another concert at the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy at 7pm on Friday (April 21).
A tight multi-cultural collaboration, the Nile Project brings together artists from the 11 Nile countries to compose new songs that combine the rich diversity of one of the oldest places on Earth. Kindred harps and resonant lyres from the river’s sources in East Africa and Ethiopia to its deltas in Sudan and Egypt have reunited to learn new musical modes while buzzing timbres and ingenious polyrhythms support vocals in more than ten languages.
Tickets to Friday night’s concert are on sale now, priced at $15.
