Anita Tijoux

South American singer and MC, Anita Tijoux, will be performing in Chicago tonight at Martyrs' in support of her new album "1977".  Opening will be All Natural, Olmeca, Philip Morris and RodStarz and G1 of Rebel Diaz.  Info from Martyrs' site...

ANITA TIJOUX became famous in Latin America as the female MC of the late 90s hip-hop group Makiza, a group that received wide appoval from audiences not associated in just hip-hop culture due to their evolved production and lyrics, more in line with the New York underground of the Native Tongues, and far from the machisimo and violence prevelant in the rap of the times. In 2006 she crossed over to the Latin mainstream pop after a collaboration with Mexican songstress Julieta Venegas in the radio hit "Eres para mí", while at the same time releasing her first solo album, Kaos. She was nominted to the 2007 MTV Latin awards for Best New Artist and Best Urban Artist.

Her latest work, 1977, will be her first album released in the US, this April on Nacional Records.

ALL NATURAL (DJ Tone B. Nimble and MC capital D) has become a legend in the hip-hop underground. Respected as one of the most solid and consistent hip-hop acts of the late 1990s and early 21st century, All Natural has raised the bar with every release. Their third album, "Vintage", certified them as hip-hop icons. Featuring the lyrical skills of The Jungle Brothers and El da Sensai, as well as the production work of Dug Infinite (Common), Andy C (Mary J. Blige) and newcomers Kenny Keys and Stoney Rock, the album exhibits modern hip-hop at its finest.

Compared to Zack de la Rocha, Talib Kweli and others, OLMECA is ranked as one of the most talented bilingual M.C.s; A talented lyricist that transcends demographics within the music and revolutionary communities “a real MC for real times.”

Olmeca is a prime example of an artist with music integrity. He is an artist with both the socio-political awareness and with the skills and musical ability that is undeniably good enough to stand on its own. It is a dual task that is certainly hard to find, but that Olmeca has captured brilliantly.

PHILLIP MORRIS has been described as "one of the ultimate word smiths of hip-hop"according to Skope magazine. He is a revolutionary thinker trapped inside of an emcee’s frame. He is a man whose passion for multi-syllabic rhyming borders on obsession.
