LES FILLES DE ILLIGHADAD – Fatou Seidi Ghali & Alamnou Akrouni – [Sahel Sounds]

aarbor   1/8/2020   A Library

Fatou Seidi Ghali and Alamnou Akrouni are Les Filles de Illighadad: the first women’s Tuareg band. They are cousins. Their band includes 2-3 other women.Tuareg women don’t play the guitar they play a style of music called tende which is centered on a drum made with mortar and pestles. It’s a style that influenced Tuareg guitar playing but isn’t generally part of the music played by Tuareg men. This is an example of traditional women innovativating beyond what has been acceptable in their culture. This is their first record (from 2016), it’s lovely! The A side is 5 tracks which are not separated, the B side is one long track called ‘Tende’. – AArbor
