LES FILLES DES ILLIGHADAD

April 29 @ 7:00 pm

$25

Jazz Fest will bring far-flung sounds to our audiences. Les Filles de Illighadad are a Tuareg band founded by Fatou Seidi Ghali in Illighadad, a village in the Sahara Desert in Niger. Ghali is a trailblazer, an acclaimed guitarist in a region where female players of the instrument are a rarity. She and her bandmates are innovating the traditional tendé form—a term used both for the music and its signature drumming—fusing its transcendent chanting with the Tuareg “desert blues” sound. We are delighted to be a stop on their first US tour since 2019!
