Ana Tijoux is the Chilean protesting in hip-hop rhythms. Her letter of presentation could be perfectly what they say about her in the media such as The Rolling Stones who chose her as the best Spanish rap singer. The New York Times that points her as the Latin American response to Lauryn Hill, or magazines such as Newsweek which classifies her as the most important Latin American rapper in the international scene. Ana Tijoux was born in Paris. Her parents were exiled during the government of Augusto Pinochet in Chile, and this has left a mark in her career, marked by a special sensitivity for political and social issues. Her participations in campaigns against inequality and oppression in the world are frequent.
She has dozens of nominations for several prizes such as MTV, 40 Principals, Indie Music Awards and has eight Grammy nominations (both Latin and Anglo), becoming the Chilean woman with more nominations for these awards. The year 2015, she managed to get the first place in the categories of Best Artist of the Year, Best Album of the Year, Best Song of the Year, and Best Urban Music Artist of the Pulsar Awards, with her fourth solo album “Vinc”. A perfect fusion of urban rhythms and hip-hop with the folklore of Andean roots. Ana Tijoux will be in charge of opening the seventh edition of Festival de Músiques Sensibles.
