The Nile Project was created in 2011 as a part of an effort to promote the sustainability of the Nile River. The river is the longest and narrowest in the world, and currently supporting 11 African countries. The Nile Project has released one album, organized five Nile scholars gatherings, put together five musical tours, visited 35 cities, put on 85 concerts and has conducted 130 workshops over the past six years. The organization raises money by traveling internationally and putting on engaging, high-energy shows.
Last night, the group stopped at the Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium on the Ohio University campus. Check out these photos, taken by WOUB’s Meagan Hall, of the event.
