Meet Latin America's foremost female MC, uncolonising the culture with her constantly evolving, politically engaged mix, equally inspired by classic hip-hop, the great South American songwriters and deep Latin roots. Born in France during her parents' political exile from Pinochet's dictatorship, Ana Tijoux returned to Chile in 1993 and by the end of the decade she'd found fame with the widely successful hip-hop group, Makiza. After they split she scored mainstream Latin-pop success with her collaboration with Mexican songstress, Julieta Venegas. Since 2009 she's released three Latin Grammy nominated solo albums, gained international attention with her rapidly viralling video for her song about the student protest movement in Chile, Shock, and picked up a Latin Grammy in 2014 for her collaboration with Jorge Drexler. Passionate, committed, a poet of the heart. There's more to come.
