"Les Filles de Illighadad are taking the world by storm" - The Guardian

"Les Filles de Illighadad is Revolutionizing Traditional Tuareg Music" - She Shreds

Les Filles de Illighadad present their first ever studio album "Eghass Malan." The female led avant rock group hailing from the village of the same name bring their new genre of Tuareg guitar mixed with traditional rural folk. Versed in tradition, Fatou Seidi Ghali and her band have created contemporary studio versions that are unlike anything ever before recorded, transporting rural nomadic song into the 21st century.
