Ana Tijoux & Flor de Toloache
Double bill of Chilean-French hip hop/songwriter and outrageously fun all-female, multinational “beyond mariachi” band.
“A righteous agenda and a tart, jazzy voice.” —New York Times on Ana Tijoux
“Top-notch musicianship, mariachi swagger for days, and a performance style that captures all the power and emotion you’d hope for.” —NPR on Flor de Toloache
Tijoux made her mark as a fiercely political rapper in 1990s Chile with international hits like “1977,” featured on the TV series Breaking Bad. In the past five years, she has emerged as a sonorous, persuasive balladeer in the tradition of Violeta Para and Mercedes Sosa. Her latest album, Roja y Negro, mixes the classic Latin American songbook with originals.
The Latin Grammy-winning, all-female, multinational band Flor de Toloache infuses classic Mexican mariachi and ranchero with bursts of hip hop, soul, jazz and salsa, and are about as much fun as it gets.
