Les Filles de Illighadad (NE)

Roots&Hybrid Festival

The band Les Filles de Illighadad was formed in a small village in the Sahara desert. Following the choir traditions of the region and the sound of a dusty desert guitar, the four Nigerien musicians created a new direction for the folk music of the nomadic Tuareg people. With their mesmerizing prayer-like expression, the group brings you into a musical trance and lets the sound of Illighadad resonate far beyond the Sahara desert.
