Les Filles de Illighadad

Description

Les Filles de Illighadad are a Tuareg band founded by Fatou Seidi Ghali in Illighadad, a village in the Sahara Desert in Niger. Ghali, it is claimed, is the first Tuareg woman to play guitar professionally. The foursome combines desert blues guitar with tende - a traditional form of chanting and rhythmic clapping accompanied by a tende drum, resulting in a sound that has been described as “meditative, hypnotic, and entrancing”.
