“Ana Tijoux is nothing less than a Latin American Lauryn Hill.  
Rapping with precise enunciation, unerring rhythm, and tremendous flow,
with a melodic sense that connects her rapping to her singing,”

– Rolling Stone

“Her voice sounds unflappable, assured and playful, not strident,
and her backup tracks wander tunefully all over the Americas,
drawing on Andean flute and charango as often as reggae or R&B.
She makes her righteousness joyful, even seductive.”
– New York Times

 

“Tijoux is one of the most influential hip hop artists in Latin America.
In her latest album, French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux finds inspiration
in the birth of her child and the complexities of womanhood.
