Les Filles de Illighadad :: At Pioneer Works

Recorded live in the fall of 2019 in Brooklyn, At Pioneer Works has a calmness and serenity about it. Melodically, there is plenty of room to breathe. Each instrument – vocals, guitar, hand claps, percussion — fills in what it needs to organically. Nothing is overworked, just enhanced. Opener, “Surbajo,” features chanting verses that mimic the push and pull of guitar and soft percussion. The effect forms a close weave of sound — patterns that are stitched together and pulled apart, over and over, held close by the women’s clear, open voices. | e reily
