Ana Tijoux



An Evening with Ana Tijoux
Tuesday, April 26, 7 p.m.
Taper Hall of Humanities (THH), Room 301
Admission is free and open to everyone. While advance reservations are full, tickets will be available at the door on a standby basis. Check-in begins at 6:15 p.m.

“South America’s answer to Lauryn Hill”—New York Times
Join us for an evening of music and conversation with Chilean MC Ana Tijoux. In the 1990s, Tijoux was beloved throughout Latin America as the MC of the hip hop group Makiza. She is now a globally popular solo artist, known for her hard-hitting political lyrics and signature flow. One of the most respected MCs in any language, Tijoux can be heard on the smash hit “Eres Para Mi” with Julieta Venegas and on her critically acclaimed solo albums 1977, La Bala, and Vengo. Tijoux moves between classic hip hop beats and pan-Latin folk sounds to powerfully address issues that matter around the world: poverty, motherhood, indigeneity, gender equity, and much more. In addition to a live acoustic performance, Tijoux will discuss her life, work, and politics with Macarena Gómez-Barris, professor of American studies and ethnicity at USC.

The evening will also include a classic Graham work performed by the inaugural class of the USC Kaufman School of Dance.
