Ana Tijoux: La Bala

Such a talented, amazing artist and poet. Her new album "La Bala" (The Bullet) will be released on January 31st in the U.S. It was released last year in South America. You can listen to the album in its entirety on NPR's website. The way she puts words together gives the Spanish language a whole new twist. Her music is sensual, and also political. How many artists can blend both of those together this well? Solo una artista tan talentosa lo puede lograr. She's been called Chile's best hip hop artist. I say, why stop at Chile?
