Ana Tijouxâ€™ signature song â€œ1977â€ was recently featured in ABCâ€™s hit show â€œDancing With the Stars,â€Â after previously appearing on â€˜Breaking Badâ€™ and EA Sportâ€™s â€˜FIFAâ€™ video game. Â She also recently appeared on the BBC with an exclusive acoustic performance.
Ana Tijouxâ€™s new album â€˜Vengoâ€™ debuted #1 on the iTunes Latin charts and has earned strong praise and multiple features atÂ Rolling Stone, New York Times, NPR, Newsweek, Spin, Vibe, Billboard, Slate, Latina, Mother Jones, OkayPlayerÂ andÂ Wax Poetics.
Ana Tijoux recently performed withÂ Lauryn Hil, MC LyteÂ andÂ Jean GraeÂ at â€˜Rock Like A Girlâ€™ at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. She also recently performed live onÂ KCRWâ€™s Morning Becomes EclecticÂ before a sold-out show in Los Angeles, in addition to major international festival shows including VIVE Latino in Mexico City and Lollapalooza in Chile.
â€˜Vengoâ€™ is the follow-up to Ana Tijouxâ€™sÂ GrammyÂ andÂ Latin GrammyÂ nominated album ‘La Bala,‘ which was widely celebrated by critics as one of the best albums of the year.
The buzz around Ana Tijoux has been steadily building since her Grammy nominated debut â€˜1977â€™ bubbled up from an underground sensation into mainstream recognition, withRadioheadâ€™s Thom Yorke’sÂ naming the song one of his favorite tracks of the year.
“Rapping with precise enunciation, unerring rhythm, and tremendous flow, with a melodic sense that connects her rapping to her singing,Â Ana Tijoux is nothing less than a Latin American Lauryn Hill. She got Anglo attention when her â€œ1977â€ was used in an episode of Breaking Bad, and she even got a shout out from Thom Yorke.”
“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.â€
â€œTijoux 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. She shares her thoughts on making music that’s universalâ€
