ANA TIJOUX RELEASES NEW SINGLE "TANIA"
Chilean music icon Ana Tijoux (@AnaTijoux) has released the new single "Tania." The song is accompanied by an official video directed by Maxi Plaza and Ignacio Cruz. It previews her first album in 9 years, entitled 'VIDA,' which will be released this fall.
"Tania" was produced by Ana's longtime collaborator Andres Celis. It was mixed by 5-time GRAMMY winner Rafa Sardina (Calle 13, Stevie Wonder). The song is a touching tribute to her sister who passed away. Ana describes this track as one of her most challenging and intimate songs. The lyrics speak of an exemplary mother, a wonderful partner and a woman who walked with courage and overflowed with vitality. Ana considers Tania to be a constant source of inspiration and a life companion who allows her to fly through songs.
The new single "Tania" follows the album's first single "Niñx." "This song is born as a manifesto to the child we all have inside of us," Ana explains. "That living being that is capable of dreaming and building infinite castles of humanity and love."
Ana is set to perform at a special Walt Disney Hall concert on November 9 in Los Angeles. She will be backed by Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic Orchestra. The event is titled "Canto En Resistencia" - it celebrates iconic protest music by Latina artists. The concert also features Lila Downs, Catalina Garcia (Monsieur Perine) and Ely Guerra.
Ana Tijoux has released 4 albums since 2007 with global hits such as "1977," "Antipatriarca" and "Shock." She has toured extensively in 15 countries across the globe and collaborated with artists from Julieta Venegas to Tom Morello and Shadia Mansour to Morcheeba. Ana has been nominated for 3 GRAMMYs and 5 Latin GRAMMYs. "Universos Paralelos," her 2014 collaboration with Jorge Drexler, won a Latin GRAMMY for "Record of the Year."
