One of five “Must-Hear international Albums of 2013”
—NPR

In January 2013, the Nile Project brought together 18 musicians from Uganda, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Egypt to experiment with a collaborative creative process that would last 10 days. Each musician brought 2 songs. In the mornings, they taught one another their respective musical languages. in the afternoons, they played musical chairs in duos, trios, and quartets. On the 5th day, they performed for each other. The puzzle was all there. It was time to organize the piece into one seamless tapestry and perform it in Aswan and Cairo 4 days later. This recording from the Nile Project’s first live concert showcases the result of this rich encounter.
