De tende, waarnaar de muziektraditie genoemd is, is het kloppend hart van de muziek van Les Filles De Illighadad. De trommel is bespannen met dierenhuid en wordt bespeeld in een bak water zodat ze een extra krachtige klank creëert. De echo’s zijn tot ver buiten het dorp hoorbaar en trekken mensen uit alle richtingen aan. Naast de functie van muziekinstrument vervult de tende een therapeutische en helende rol bij trancesessies en exorcisme.

"Les Filles are all from Illighadad, a secluded commune in central Niger, far off in the scrubland deserts at the edge of the Sahara. The village is only accessible via a grueling drive through the open desert and there is little infrastructure, no electricity or running water. But what the nomadic zone lacks in material wealth it makes up for deep and strong identity and tradition. The surrounding countryside support hundreds of pastoral families, living with and among their herds, as their families have done for centuries. 

The sound that defines rural Niger is a music known as “tende.” It takes its name from a drum, built from a goat skin stretched across a mortar and pestle. Like the environs, tende music is a testament to wealth in simplicity, with sparse compositions built from a few elements, vocals, handclaps, and percussion. Songs speak of the village, of love, and of praise for ancestors. It is a music form dominated by women. Collective and communal, tende is tradition for all the young girls of the nomad camps, played during celebrations and to pass the time during the late nights of the rainy season.
