Fatou Seidi Ghali & Alamnou Akrouni – Les Filles de Illighadad

Les Filles de Illighadad by Fatou Seidi Ghali & Alamnou Akrouni

Digging deep in West Africa Christopher Kirkley unearths a fascinating┬árecording from rural Niger. Two very different sides of Tuareg music – dreamy ishumar acoustic guitar sessions, and the hypnotic polyphonic tende that inspires it. Guitarist Fatou Seidi Ghali and vocalist Alamnou Akrouni lead the troupe, named after the village. Recorded in the open air studio of the desert. Hypnotic is the best way to describe the music. Another gem from Sahelsounds.
