ABOUT:

Nile Project: The Nile Project is a new initiative with a mission to inspire, educate, and empower Nile citizens to work together to foster the sustainability of their river ecosystem. Through an innovative approach combining music, learning activities, and an enterprise platform, the project seeks to address the cultural and environmental challenges at the root of the Nile basin’s problems.

Meklit Hadero: Meklit Hadero’s music is imbued with poetry and multiplicity, from hybridized sounds of Tizita (haunting and nostalgic music) drawing from her Ethiopian heritage, to the annals of jazz, folk songs, hip-hop and art rock. Drawing from the concept of the "inbetween", Meklit's music transports us to the post-national space of Africa and the Americas, inspiring us to bridge the frontiers between language, tribes and disciplines. Her songs celebrate the newness of life and the hyphens that bring us together. 

Meklit has released three studio albums, served as an artist-in-residence at NYU, and completed musical commissions for the San Francisco Arts Commission, the Fund for Artists, the Brava Theater, and the De Young Museum. In 2011, Meklit co-founded the Nile Project with Egyptian Ethnomusicologist Mina Girgis, the initiative's Executive Director and creative instigator. She is the founder of the Arba Minch Collective, former Co-Director of the Red Poppy Art House, and a TED Senior Fellow, with the Nile Project as her main fellowship focus.
