Les Filles de Illighadad (daughters of Illighadad, Niger) take Tuareg, desert blues guitar music and fuse it with tendé, a hypnotic and spiritual style of chanting traditionally performed by women with accompanying percussion. Celebrated as one of the first female Tuareg guitar bands, the group is composed of three women, solo guitarist Fatou Seidi Ghali, renowned vocalist Alamnou Akrouni, and Agadez guitarist Amaria Hamadalher, who are accompanied by Ghali’s brother, guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, who also plays with Mdou Moctar.
