Phoenix, AZ – French-Chilean musician Ana Tijoux is the latest artist to stand with immigrants in Arizona as part of the “Alto Arizona” campaign, an ongoing effort to bring visibility, recognition, dignity and to migrants who have been targets of hate in Arizona and around the world.
Tijoux spent her childhood in France after her parents had to flee a repressive regime in Chile. It was there where she discovered hip hop music, and where she began her musical career. Her name was recognized in the international market after collaborating with the Mexican artist Julieta Venegas in the songEres Para Mi. Her album entitled 1977, which has songs that touch on issues such as political injustice and her life in France, was nominated for a Grammyin 2010.
Now she’s out with a new music video “Shock” (http://bit.ly/LZ3GfB) directed by Alex Rivera (Sleepdealers) from the album “La Bala” which features Tijoux with protesters of Arizona’s infamous Sheriff Arpaio and the anti-immigrant law, S.B. 1070, which the United States Supreme Court ruled was largely unconstitutional on June 25, 2012. Filmed after a concert with Puente Arizona, Tijoux’s concert served efforts that pre-date SB1070 to challenge the state’s anti-immigrant climate and defend and advance the rights of migrant families.
