Description

Nile: Song of the Rivers on CD

At 4,130 miles, the Nile is the longest river in the world. It runs through ten countries as it wends it's way from Lake Victoria to the Mediterranean sea - Sudan, South Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Egypt. Water, the source of life, is also the lifeblood of human civilization. The music that emerged from the many countries through which the Nile courses echoes the rich diversity of the diverse cultures that developed. This fascinating, lavishly illustrated and informative set offers an overview of the musical life of this region. Over 22 tracks, it finds connections and contrasts between Western-influenced urban, modern traditionalist and folkloric styles - all of which have vibrant exponents in today's Africa.
