Simon Broughton with more music from The Nile Project in Aswan, Egypt, a multi-disciplinary gathering featuring musicians from different cultures along the river, including performers from Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia and Uganda.
This week the programme focuses on Nubian culture, still present in the Aswan basin, but which suffered considerably with the creation of the High Dam and the Nasser lake in the late 1960s. Plus there are highlights from the festival concert recorded specially for the programme in Aswan.
