An album (CD/DD) recording of acoustic Nubian music by the band Nuba Nour featuring traditional songs from antiquity alongside specially commissioned contemporary folk songs to be performed on traditional instruments. The album is a reflection on the ongoing struggles of life in exile for the Nubian people in Egypt, following the loss of their ancestral homelands during the construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s.
