While she may be unkown to US audiences, French-born Chilean MC Ana Tijoux may very well be that elusive next best thing in hip hop. Regarded as one of Latin America's leading female MCs, she combines sophisticated lyrics, a hypnotic jazzy voice and dynamic beats into a sound that's nicely reminiscent of the golden era of hip hop. You may not speak Spanish, but you don't need to - not when the music is this good.
