Chilean MC Ana Tijoux Rocked My Global

Posted by on Mon, Sep 3, 2012 at 7:19 PM

Props goes to the Bumbershoot folks for including MC Ana Tijoux in this year's show. Her set provided what I can only describe as world-class hiphop— a hiphop that's heavy, that's produced by a talented expert, that booms, that has depth, that has a whole lot of heart. Also, Tijoux didn't dress hiphop (baggy this, baggy that, baseball cap). She instead looked like a regular woman heading to an almost mindless job in some mid-sized firm. But her raps, in Spanish, got to the soul and fire of things. All I want now is for Bumbershoot to feature more global rappers, more rappers in other native tongues.
