Thu 13 April > Rebel Up! & SOTU festival present: Les Filles de Illighadad, OCCII, A’dam

Rebel Up! & SOTU festival present: Les Filles de Illighadad

SOTU (Sounds of the Underground) is an annual alternative music festival in Amsterdam. SOTU has a passion for genre bending sound and performances – you can listen to noise, punk, folk, improv, rave, avant-garde and electronics.

DJ warmup  21:00 – 22:30
LES FILLES DE ILLIGHADAD (NE, Sahel Sounds) 22:30 – 23:30
 DJ afterparty 23:30 – 01:00

Les Filles d’Illighadad
Fatou Seidi Ghali, Alamnou Akrouni and Mariama Salah Aswan come from the region of Illighadad, in the heartland of the Niger bush. Rarely have we heard sounds that resonate with as much emotion as those of Les Filles d’Illighadad. Fatou Seidi Ghali directs the band on guitar and vocals with her measured and calm play. In a world dominated by the masculine gender, she is one of the only female guitarists of Tuareg music. Together with her cousins ​​Alamnou and Mariame on vocals, they go right into the essence of the “ishumars” music, mixing it on stage with the tradition of “Tende”, recording their pieces in the large open studio of the desert. Its music is minimalist, poetic and feminine where the trance and ancestral rhythms of the “Tendes” come to support a throbbing and melodious blues. Love, religion, the difficulties of life, the joy of the community, the glorification of nature and the Tuareg culture are themes distilled from the grains of their songs.
