Description

An overnight sensation a decade in the making, Ana Tijoux spent years playing music, grinding away at a hip-hop career, before she was "discovered" and won Latin MTV's Best New Artist award. Born to French and Chilean parents, Tijoux started rapping as a teenager and made a name for herself in Latin American underground rap circles as emcee in the group Makiza. It was her 2006 collaboration with Mexican pop star Julieta Venegas, however, that launched her into international Latin pop stardom, laying the groundwork for a solo career as a cross-cultural, cross-genre musical icon. - Cat Johnson sanjose.com
