Global A Go-Go presents:

Desert blues from the Sahara is music that has been played almost exclusively by men — until now. Les Filles De Illighadad (pictured above) are an all-female band playing in the style Tuaregs call assouf or la guitare. You’ll hear a track from their new album this week on Global A Go-Go.

Also this week: Hamad Kalkaba, a new addition to the West African authenticite pantheon; the sound of Colombia’s Pacific coast; and remixers take on Latin dance classics.
