“Filligar rocks Kuwait music scene” – The Arab Times
The U.S. State Department sent American alternative rock quartet Filligar to Kuwait this January as cultural ambassadors representing “the best of the U.S. arts community.” Filligar’s trip to the Middle East entailed performances and workshops intended to strengthen cultural ties between the US and the Arab world.
Last summer, Filligar was sent by the State Department to Azerbaijan, where they were the first American rock band to tour the former Soviet state. This coming February, Filligar heads to Guyana, South America, where they will bring their music to audiences in the heart of the Amazonian rainforest.
Filligar’s new album Hexagon was named “Best New Music” by American Songwriter magazine.
