Ana Tijoux is the Chilean hip-hop protester. Her cover letter could well be what media outlets like
The Rolling Stones who chose her as the best rapper in Spanish, The New York Times who points to
her as the Latin American response to Lauryn Hill, or magazines like Newsweek who ranks her as
the most important Latin American rapper on the international scene. Ana Tijoux was born in Lille
in 1977. Her parents went into exile during Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship in Chile, which has
left a mark on her career, marked by a special sensitivity to political and social issues. Her music
dialogues to the sound of hip hop, fused. A feminist and activist in her lyrics, she denounces social
and cultural deficiencies. In favor of women's rights and against gender violence, in 2014 she
highlighted in her album "Vengo" the song "Antipatriarch". They frequently participate in
campaigns against inequality and oppression in the world. Tijoux is committed to defending
women's rights and has denounced gender violence and inequality. Also the inequality faced by
artists in the world of cinema, or singers.
"We realize that in every place we visit, in every news item we see, violence against women is
reiterated, multiplied and totally normalized (...) deep down you are being asked with whom you
abandon your children when you go on tour, and many times it is women journalists who ask you
that, so I wonder: when are the daddy men who leave their children when they go on tour going
to ask this question?
"We have to be young, we have to be attractive, we have
to be intelligent, but they hope we don't talk too much,
and sing very beautifully and hopefully see ourselves
very sexy above the stage (...) one as music questions
oneself and says: 'chucha, what is my capacity for
movement here', because finally if one says that one has
critical thinking, one is still confronted daily with this,
from advertising, from atrophied bodies".
Ana is a global artist. About to publish her first book of
poetry and her fifth studio album, she dares to go
through all the creative processes: she composes, writes
and arranges both her own themes and those she
develops for different audiovisual projects, from films to
documentaries. She has also put herself in front of the
camera in films such as La Isla de los Pingüinos or a
Chilean series of upcoming premieres and feminist
theme called La Jauría.
Her recognition in Latin America began in the late 90's as a femcee of the hip-hop group Makiza,
consolidating her worth and success with her second solo album "1977".
His first solo album, titled Kaos, produced by Nicolás Carrasco (Foex) of the Potoco Discos label,
together with guitarist and producer Cristóbal Pérez (Pera Prezz), would be released in 2007 under
the Oveja Negra label, founded by the SCD, with his first single "Despabílate! In this album she
fuses funk, soul and other black rhythms, giving himself the freedom to compose sad, cheerful,
dynamic and melodic songs with the desire to show a whole range of emotions.
With her 1977 album (2009), Ana Tijoux showed her skills through sophisticated rhythms and
lyrics, wrapped in a voice with a touch of jazz. The album, named for being her year of birth, paints
a picture of her childhood in France and pays tribute to the Chilean hip hop that inspired her in
the early '90s. That same year Radiohead leader Thom Yorke recommended his followers listen to
the artist's 1977 song, which raised Tijoux's popularity in Europe.
In March 2014 she released her fourth solo album, Vengo, musically produced by Andrés Celis,
mixing different rhythms and cultures. The artist releases a set of 17 songs, ranging from tinku to
the most contentious hip hop, with instrumental nuances full of political manifestos, contingency
themes, social and cultural deficiencies. The initial track "Vengo", which gives the plaque its name;
continues with the aforementioned "Somos Sur", together with the Palestinian femcee Shadia
Mansour; "Antipatriarca", produced by Cristóbal Pérez (Pera Prezz), dedicated to women's
liberation, women's autonomy and the vindication of their rights and the denunciation against
violence against women; and "Somos Todos Erroristas" which, following the line of collaborations,
has the contribution of Hordatoj. In the song "Creo en Ti", also produced by guitarist Cristobal
Perez, has the company of Juanito Ayala, with a cheerful lyrics, positive, full of awareness and
hope, nuanced with sounds of charangos, quenas and redobles nortinos, demonstrating the
versatility of styles combined in the work, Tijoux manages to impress a new local musical
environment, as well as opening the door to new exponents in search of consecration. It is with
this album that he manages to captivate the ears of great international exponents such as Iggy
Pop, who incorporated in the playlist of his BBC radio program the song "Somos Sur", appealing to
"this girl if she has balls", or as the Japanese composer and activist Ryuichi Sakamoto who shared
on his Facebook wall the song "Antipatriarch" and "No TPP" (2013), pointing out that there are no
borders for music.
She has dozens of nominations for various awards such as the MTV, 40 Principales, Indie Music
Awards and has eight Grammy nominations (both Latin and Anglo), making her the Chilean

urban/alternative rock album", which would be repeated in 2013 for "La Bala" and in 2015 with
"Vengo" in the category "Best Latin/urban/alternative rock album". Likewise, in the Latin Grammy
