Anamaría Merino, commonly known as the French-Chilean hip hop poetess Ana Tijoux is teaming up with Uruguayan composer Jorge Drexler, most famous for his Oscar winning arrangements on The Motorcycle Diaries. With a working title for the collaborative new album already announced, we can look forward to the Detroit mixed and mastered La Bala to include an intriguing array of classical violins, guitar, and trovadores. The album will also include accompaniments of ex La Pozze Latina member Solo Di Medina, and the cuban hip hop group Los Aldeanos. The forthcoming album La Bala promises to be a much awaited return since Tijoux’s Latin Grammy nominated 1977 (2009) and her extensive touring throughout the US, recently playing Lollapalooza, Chicago this very weekend. A release date is set for October.
