Description

Ana Tijoux is regarded as one of the leading female MCs in Latin America. She has been nominated by the MTV Latin America VMA’s for “Best New Artist” and “Best Urban Artist.” With her U.S. debut, ‘1977,’ Tijoux proves her abilities as a true “rapera” with cunning and sophisticated lyrics shown off through her hypnotic, jazzy voice and dynamic beats. The new album, named for her year of birth, paints a picture of her childhood in France and pays homage to the early 90s era of hip-hop that influenced her as a teenager in Chile. Tijoux is set for her first-career extensive U.S. tour beginning at SXSW.

Tijoux was born in France to a French mother and a Chilean father in political exile during Pinochet’s dictatorship. After a return to democracy, the family moved to Chile. She found a home in the emerging hip-hop scene of Santiago and first started rhyming in French, then later in Spanish.

She has been featured on tracks by Argentine electronic-tango collective Bajofondo, Mexican hip hop icons Control Machete and Chilean beat master DJ Bitman. But it was her collaboration with Mexican rock star Julieta Venegas on the track, “Eres Para Mi,” which helped expose Tijoux to a mainstream audience. The song became a TV and radio smash hit across Latin America and the U.S.
