About this Event
Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles & Adee Roberson present: LES FILLES DE ILLIGHADAD + ADEE ROBERSON
July 15, 2022 | 7pm-10pm
Les Filles de Illighadad was founded by Fatou Seidi Ghali in Illighadad, a village in the Sahara Desert in Niger. The band juxtaposes desert blues guitar melodies with tende – a traditional Tuareg musical form typically performed by women, featuring drumming and chanting. The result is a timeless sound that The New Yorker describes as “mesmeric, almost prayer-like” and Pitchfork calls “hypnotic”.
Adee Roberson is an interdisciplinary artist whose work is a meditation on symbolism and texture. Synthesizing performance and installation, her work melds vibration and technicolor visions through paintings, video, and melodic compositions.
