Ana Tijoux makes a welcome return to La Linea following her two sold out shows at the festival in 2015 and 2018. Ana’s solo career began in 2009 and she has since become arguably the most important Chilean musical figure of her generation.
Returning to her rap roots, with her new single out on 28 January – title track of the album to be released later this year – Antifa Dance, (antifa means anti-fascist) is an urgent call to the internationalism that the world emergency demands.
Born in France during the exile of her parents from the military dictatorship in Chile, Tijoux began her career in the late 90s with the ground-breaking rap trio Makiza. She is a Grammy-winning soloist, best known for her smooth voice and her political lyrics, an icon for feminists, students, and leftists around the world. It is just as common to see her doing interviews on Al-Jazeera or Democracy Now! as it is to see her grace the stages of Lollapalooza or Roskilde. With the intention of re-connecting with her roots and fighting for a whole continent, she has become the voice of a generation, not only in Chile but for Latinos worldwide.
Astute and outspoken, Fedzilla is an MC and artist straddling dembow-heavy beats with a Latin twist. A key member of the award-winning London-Havana soundclash Wara, she weaves between ragga, cumbia, hip-hop and dancehall. Beats supplied by Movimientos DJ Cal Jader.
