Ana Tijoux kicked off her global tour with her first ever performance in Puerto Rico and in Miami this last weekend, and sheâ€™s got more coast-to-coast dates planned in support of her Grammy and Latin Grammy nominated album, â€œVengo.â€
Tijouxâ€™s tour coincides with the release of her new single, â€œAntipatriarca,â€ an anthem which she dedicated to all the women of the world. On the making of the song, Tijoux told Newsweek â€œPerhaps itâ€™s the fact that I have a baby who will be a woman. Sheâ€™s a little girlâ€”perhaps I write it for her, so sheâ€™ll be proud to be a woman with ideas and creativity to blow our minds.â€
Tijoux will be on tour during the month of April and her fans can watch her perform â€œAntipatriarcaâ€ and other hits during the dates below.
