Les Filles de Illighadad - Eghass Malan

Les Filles de Illighadad present their first studio album "Eghass Malan". The group of avant-garde leaders led by women of the town of the same name brings their new genre of Tuareg guitar mixed with traditional rural people. Versed in tradition, Fatou Seidi Ghali and his band have created contemporary studio versions that do not resemble anything ever recorded, transporting the nomadic rural song to the 21st century.

Les Filles are all from Illighadad, an isolated commune in the center of Niger, in the distance in the desert deserts on the edge of the Sahara. The town is only accessible through an exhausted road through the open desert and there is little infrastructure, neither electricity nor running water. But what the nomadic zone lacks material wealth compensates for a deep and strong identity and tradition. The surrounding countryside helps hundreds of families of shepherds who live with their flocks, as their families have done for centuries.

The sound that defines the rural Niger is a music known as "tende". It takes its name from a drum, built from a goatskin spread over a mortar. Like the surroundings, traditional music is a testament to the richness in simplicity, with scattered compositions constructed from a few elements, vocals, claps and percussion.
