A Tribute to Mohammed Wardi
Project: A musical and printed tribute to the Sudanese musician who managed to bridge the gap between Sudan and South Sudan with his work.

Production Runtime: July 2012

Partners: German Federal Foreign Office

A musical product that was distributed together with a print edition of The Niles on the anniversary of South Sudan’s nationhood.

The mid section of the newspaper was dedicated to singer-songwriter Mohammed Wardi; it included sheet music and lyrics for Wardi’s music. The project was inspired by Wardi’s exceptional ability to bridge the divide between northerners and southerners with his music.

When he passed away on February 18, 2012, many Sudanese and South Sudanese were united in grief – a rare incident of unity after separation.
