les filles de illighadad Eghass Malan (LP, £19.95)
Future Tuareg music from the female led avant-rock group Les Filles de Illighadad. Mixing traditional percussion with electric guitars, Les Filles bring ancient village folk music into the modern era. Drawing on traditional tende music, the forgotten inspiration of Tuareg guitar, Fatou and Les Filles breath new life into the genre. Hypnotic guitar riffs, driving rhythms and polyphonic resonant vocals combine to create an organic sound, that is both timeless and natural. A wholly original project, from a band that had never left their village before 2016. This is their first studio production.
