Performers from the eleven countries that share the Nile River come together in a musical conversation designed to foster cross-cultural empathy and inspire environmental curiosity. A powerful pan-Nile percussion section underpins the collective, which features both traditional and contemporary instruments.

This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from Iowa Arts Council and General Mills Foundation.
