LANE SERIES CONCERT:"The Nile Project"

Time: 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Location: Flynn Mainstage
Description: LANE SERIES CONCERT:"The Nile Project" Flowing from the rich cultural traditions, geopolitical issues, and the great beauty of the world’s longest river comes the exciting World Music event, THE NILE PROJECT. We launch a three-day residency with this ensemble of musicians and environmental activists from the Nile Region with a spectacular concert on the Flynn Mainstage. Led by charismatic Ethiopian-American singer MEKLIT HADERO, a pan-Nile percussion section drives this orchestra of Ethiopian, Egyptian, and Ugandan instruments along with vocalists singing in eleven different languages. The Nile Project’s unique sound comes from intensive work among various musicians, learning from one another and translating that experience into both traditional and collectively composed new songs. The result is an unprecedented collaboration that garnered the Nile Project’s first recording, Aswan, a coveted spot on NPR’s Top 5 Must-Hear International Albums of 2013.

Global Village has a limited number of free tickets! Stop by the L/L Director's Office Mon-Fri, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. to get yours!
