New Nile Orchestra
February 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Burlington – Waterfront
Ethiopian singer/dancer Kiflu Kidane and his band New Nile Orchestra have been performing their high energy brand of world music for more than 20 years across New England. The infectious rhythms from the band combined with Kidane’s remarkable dancing and singing inspire even the most committed wall flower to get up and dance.
“…Theses snaky, seductive polyrhythms need no translation…your body parts will begin to wiggle about with an unamerican abandon.” – VOX
” New Nile Orchestra creates an infectious and danceable brand of afro-pop…fun to the max!” – DIRTY LINEN
“The music is an absolute joy to listen and dance to, retaining the purity of purpose that the Ethiopian connection serves while at the same time generating an infectious happiness that is unlike most other attempts at this type of African-music hybrid.” – Mark Sustic, RHYTHM MUSIC MAGAZINE
