Two Amazing Artist from America

Ana Tijoux is the Chilean front woman for Makiza and she has a very old school but unique rapping style. She is beautiful, powerful, intelligent and indigenous! “tengo sangre indígena, mejor porque soy hermosa” Her lyrics do not rhyme but her flow is amazing as she manipulates syllables like a true artist.

Li Saumet is a Colombian front woman for Bomba Estéreo, a Colombian, electrofolklorhip group that, as my invented genre describes, mixes electronic music with folkroric cumbia and champeta music from Colombia with fierce and sensual rapping lyrics that makes you dance all night long. Li is a very strong front woman without being too much of a front woman and she is backed by some incredible musicians. Simón Mejía is the actual creator of the band and composer of the music (and bassist!) but Li writes the lyrics and adds to the music with her hip voice. Although I will say that her voice can get too one-dimensional. I hope that with time her voice and flow grows as well as the band because they put on a great show! Also one side note is that Simón was chosen as a finalist for a year long mentorship program with Brian Eno and you can already see that influence in his music but in his own style, which I really dig.
