Program text


Les Filles de Illighadad come from the village of Illighadad in Niger. Six years ago, guitarist Fatou Seidi Ghali and vocalist Alamnou Akrouni began infusing and modernizing the traditional music of the Tuareg with elements of electronic rock. In the meanwhile, the band has become a quartet. On their current album At Pioneer Works, they combine repetitive blues textures with Tendé music: choral songs accompanied by drums, which are sung by the Tuareg at weddings, camel parades, and other festivities. The variant by Les Filles de Illighadad takes on a hypnotic sound, inviting listeners across all cultural boundaries to indulge in a communal trance and self-reflection.
