More on this album


Known for their collaboration with Peter Gabriel in "The Last Tempation of Christ" and with Tony Gatlif in "Latcho Drom", and celebrated by Keith Jarett and Sun Ra as the masters of Middle Eastern Gipsy music, The Musicians of the Nile are the founding fathers of the World Music scene.

Originating from Upper Egypt, wearing heavy, dark galabiyas (djellabas), the Musicians of the Nile have been touring throughout Europe for about 3 decades, carried by festivals and musical celebrations. More than a simple ethnical encounter, their shows are a real gust of spontaneity phrased by the rolling percussions.
