Poetry and music rarely collide as effortlessly as when Ana Tijoux introduces pen to microphone. This young Chilean poet raps so smoothly and with such conviction that her vocals are more like that of a respected orator mixed with the seductive voice you hear when that attractive late night snack beckons you from the kitchen cabinet. Her 2012 sophomore album, La Bala (“The Bullet”), is full of politically and socially-charged messages. This is no surprise, considering how she grew up in self-imposed exile with her parents in France, prior to her eventual return to Chile and integration into its underground hip-hop scene. Nacional Records recently released the new video for her song Sacar la Voz (“Raise Your Voice”), which features Uruguay’s Jorge Drexler. How do you think the video turned out? Leave your thoughts below.
