As The Nile Flows - Hamza El Din Retrospective

As The Nile Flows - Hamza El Din Retrospective

 Ticket Info

  Regular Price: $30 - $54

  Reserved seating
As the Nile Flows recounts the life of Nubian composer, singer, oud and tar virtuoso Hamza El Din (1929 - 2006), starting with his childhood in Egypt and tracing his journey through Sudan, Italy, Japan and the U.S. Having made Northern California his home since the late 1960s, Hamza left an indelible mark on the Bay Area’s musical community. His recordings and collaborations with the Kronos Quartet, the Grateful Dead, Lines Ballet and others introduced Nubian music to the West and showcased his unique voice and inimitable instrumental style. This live retrospective will feature excerpts from Hamza’s unpublished autobiography, anecdotes and memories shared by many of Hamza's friends, and performances by some of his collaborators including percussionists Mickey Hart and Zakir Hussain as well as longtime Kronos Quartet cellist Joan Jeanrenaud.

This event will take place on March 21 to highlight International Water Day and recall the Nubians’ deep connection to the Nile River. Hamza foretold the flooding of his ancestral village and the great Nubian migration due to the raising of the Aswan High Dam. He spoke of the plight of the Nubians while his music expressed his environmental ethic. As the Nile Flows is produced by Nile Project director Mina Girgis and narrated by Dr. Arif Gamal - professor of Nubian poetry and environmental science. Event proceeds will support Hamza's Nubian community.
