ANA TIJOUX

"Hip-hop is a land for the landless."



Her parents were political activists during the Chilean Pinochet regime. They fled to France in 1977. There, Ana earned a further political education from her parents and French-African rappers.

Politics have vibrated through Ana's music since the 90's Mastiza (Chilean hip-hop team) era. Now she creates catalyst sounds through indigenous Andean influences, political art and rap.

"This wave of fascism, it is worldwide. It is not only in the United States. It is in Europe and Latin America, too; reaffirmation of the idea of nations with flags and walls. We have to go back and ask: what is America? 

Born from a multiplication of immigrants, and even more, also born of the genocide of the Indians who lived there before they arrived from Europe and other parts of the world in search of gold, land or work.  One must ask: what is it to be an American?" (Latino Rebels)

Ana Tijoux brings the indigenous American woman's revolution.
