Concert

Les Filles de Illighadad perform forward-thinking Tuareg music, combining traditional percussion with modern electric guitars and catapulting traditional folk music into the modern age. Both the Tuareg guitar as well as lead vocalist Fatou Seidi Ghali – one of the few female guitarists in Niger – breathe new life into the genre. Hypnotic riffs, driving rhythms and polyphonic, melodious resonances result in an organic sound that’s simultaneously both timeless and natural. Out of Illighadad, their home village on the edge of the Sahara, Les Filles have taken tendé – Tuareg music from Niger played primarily by women – to an international stage. Their debut album Eghass Malan was recorded in Cologne after only a few concerts of their first European tour. In February they're presenting this album for the first time in Berlin.
