The Nile Project with Western Carolina University @ Folkmoot Friendship Center | Waynesville | North Carolina | United States
The WCU Bardo Arts Center is pleased to present, The Nile Project.
A collaboration with universities across the state will bring music from 11 countries in east Africa, all connected by the Nile River, to North Carolina for a series of musical celebrations.
 
The Nile & African Identity, Discussion & Music Demonstration with Nile Project Musicians at Folkmoot.
10 a.m. to 11 a.m., Folkmoot 112 Virginia Ave, Waynesville, NC 28786
We will explore the ways varying definitions of being “African” have affected Nile history. We will draw from examples of how the world music industry portrays African identity and share how the Nile Project represents a departure from traditionally­ exported African music. This event is free for WCU students, $3 for Haywood County School kids and $5 for the general public.
