Chilean Rapper Ana Tijoux, the Newest Face of Latina Hip-Hop

Wednesday, September 01, 2010

Chilean hip-hop artist Ana Tijoux sees herself as a musician first, and a rapper, second. The combination of clear homage to the kings and queens of soul, hip-hop and funk come through in her music, and sets a backdrop to her smooth style. Tijoux was born in France, after her parents fled Chile during Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship.

After Chile returned to democratic government, Tijoux flew back to her parents' homeland and has settled into her career. Her second album, "1977," is gaining traction both in Chile and in the U.S.

I am in love with Ana. She is the complete package, talented, beautiful, intelligent, and socially responsible.
