In the last five years, French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux has risen into the cream of the crop of serious Latin American artists using music to raise social consciousness. Building an audience to unfold social and political discourse demands a certain level of recognition. Some people point to Tijoux's performance at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert as her international breakthrough. Others argue it was Thom Yorke's 2010 listing of the rapper as one of his then-current favorites that brought her international acclaim. Most recently, we witnessed her hit "1977" being featured on that TV phenomenon Breaking Bad. And of course, how can anyone forget her collaboration with Mexican pop star Julieta Venegas in the infectious mega-hit "Eres Para Mi."
