NPR Music has named Aswan one of the 5 Must-Hear International Albums of the Fall.
Aswan, is named after the city where it was recorded live at our first-ever performance, in January 2013.
The concert was the culmination of a ten-day residency that brought together 18 musicians from Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, South Sudan, Sudan, and Uganda to collaboratively compose and perform a new body of songs inspired by the Nile Basin’s diverse musical traditions and instruments. Read more about the album and residency here.
Another album from our January 2014 Uganda Gathering is in the cooking. Stay tuned for more music!
