Ardennes Festival

Aicha Chighaly  |  Music  |  2018  |  Mauritania
The Festival is an annual artistic event that presents the audience with a traditional musical instrument that is not available outside the Mauritanian cultural musical scene: the “Ardennes”. This instrument is characterized by the fact that it is only played by women. The festival will introduce the audience to the history of the instrument and its musical power. It also represents an opportunity to present the special role and status of the woman artist in a traditional desert and Bedouin community.
