LES FILLES DE ILLIGHADAD
Guitarist Fatou Seidi Ghali and vocalist Alamnou Akrouni lead a troupe of friends in the creation of sublime music in their village of Illighadad in rural Niger. Their debut album Les Filles de Illighadad, released in 2016 on Sahel Sounds, was recorded in the open air studio of the desert. The girls explore two very different sides of Tuareg music—dreamy ishumar acoustic guitar sessions and the hypnotic polyphonic tende that inspires it.

ZUKI
“I’m here to make you dance, feel good — or both.” That’s how Zuki describes his purpose as a DJ.

With his eclectic musical taste inspired by his travels, you’re guaranteed to go on a musical journey and ultimately be left wondering how you ended up on the dance floor. Growing up to his Mother’s 70’s funk essentials box set and his Dad’s Fela Kuti tapes playing in the household, his range of musical influence is wide. Zuki can take the hypnotizing drums of South African house, saxophone samples from afrobeat hits and blend them effortlessly with your favourite rhythm, funk and hip-hop tunes.

From his humble beginnings almost a decade ago bringing the music to house parties, it didn’t matter if it was a basement in Abuja, or a backyard in Moscow, he was mixing genres and moving feet with just a couple of turntables. A frequent collaborator with other artists in Winnipeg’s music scene and weekly residencies at Winnipeg’s go-to music venues, his mixes and remixes have racked up thousands of plays.

COLLECTION GET!
Eliot Britton and Grace Hrabi have been creating electronic music together since 2009. Their contrasting aesthetics and performing styles first converged in Montreal under the band name Collection Get. Their debut album Save. As… is a celebration of contrast and technological colour, infusing Grace’s human elegance into Eliot’s intricate and funky compositional language. The resulting project delivers a unique show and listening experience, offering a fresh perspective on two of Winnipeg’s musical highlights, jazz and electronic music.
