Les Filles de Illighadad set to release their first-ever studio album ‘Eghass Malan’

Eghass Malan by Les Filles de Illighadad

Les Filles de Illighadad gives the first taste of their upcoming record with the hypnotic guitar riffs, driving rhythm, and polyphonic resonant vocals of Eghass Malan.

In just under five minutes, 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 an typically enchanting, 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.

Stream this impressive title track below and keep a lookout for the album dropping on October 28th with Sahelsounds. Enjoy!
