Badass Chilean Rapper Ana Tijoux Coming to the Bay Area

November 7, 2012

I knew I had to get back on the blog-wagon when I heard that one of the coolest exports from my new home, Chile, will be making not one but two appearances in the Bay Area! If you’re not familiar with Grammy-nominated emcee  Ana Tijoux’s music perhaps you may have heard her hit song ‘1977’ in the background of this sick scene from Breaking Bad

 

Tijoux will be performing at SF’s Brick & Mortar Music Hall on November 20th, and then again in the East Bay at Berkeley’s La Peña Cultural Center on November 21st. If I was back at home I would, without a doubt, make a night of it on the 21st and hit up La Peña’s attached restaurant Cafe Valparaiso for some pre-show Chilean empanadas and delicious sangria.

In addition to being up against 4 reggaeton guys for the title of Best Urban Album at next week’s Latin Grammy’s, Ms. Tijoux will also be walking the red carpet 6-months pregnant! Mad props and fingers crossed for her. She was also recently featured in Time Magazine’s “10 Female Emcees You Should Know” and NPR’s “Best Albums of 2012 (So Far)” – which means if you haven’t checked out her new album, La Bala, you should probably go do that.

Watch her music video for “Sacar La Voz”  (featuring Academy Award winner Jorge Drexler) or her new video “Volver”  directed by B+ from Los Angeles crew Mochilla.
