Les Filles de Illighadad (2017)

Illighadad, Niger

With atmospheric acoustics emulating the open air of the desert they’re recorded in, Les Filles de Illighadad, comprised of Fetou Seidi Ghali and Alamnou Akron, are the apotheosis of a lilting, calming breeze. Intermingling fluttering guitarwork and expressive lyricism, the three-piece come together as the horizon between ground and sky.
