Les Filles de Illighadad


Psychedelic Saharan desert rock. Hailing from a remote commune in Central Niger, performers Fatou, Alamnou, Ahmoudou and Fitimita shake up the male-dominated Tuareg music scene and rework ancient village folk music for modern ears. The result? Hypnotic guitars, traditional percussion and rhythmic desert grooves.
