"A spirit of love, respect, camaraderie and just plain
good fun." Afropop Worldwide


After a jubilant 2015 Upper Valley residency, the world-touring Nile Project returns with more marvelous musicians from the 11 Nile countries—playing danceable, life-affirming music collaboratively composed for their diverse instruments, languages and musical traditions. Now led by Ethiopian-American saxophonist Danny Mekonnen (Debo Band), these masters joyously spread a message of Nile Region cooperation through a heady mix of Ethiopian grooves, North African Arabic classical traditions and rarely heard East African musical styles.

Funded in part by the Wetzel Family Fund for the Arts
