The Nile Project - Blog 3 - Musician Intro, 3 vocalists

I wanted to give you a quick intro of some of the musicians here. Because I am a singer snob, I will start with three of the vocalists. These folks are amazing. I'm enjoying noticing the stylistic and timbre similarities and differences as well as vocal ornamentation.

This is Alsarah on the left. She is Sudanese, now living in Brooklyn. This video was produced by Peter Varshavsky of Porto Franco Records in San Francisco.  Read more about her here.

Mekuanent is from Ehtiopia. He loves to dance and has awesome outfits. For more info click here.

We also have the gorgeous voice of Dina El Wedidi. She only started singing four years ago when she was 19. Brazilian superstar Gilberto Gil is her mentor. For more info click here. Click ahead in this video a little bit.
