Music Monday - Ana Tijoux

Thanks NPR.

French Chilean hip-hop singer. This song is called "Shock."

It's all about the protests that have taken place in the world over the past year. Protesters from the Arab Spring and the Occupy movements and in Chile. Last year, there were some major protests by students against the government. They turned violent, unfortunately. But they were basically saying:
"We need education, we need jobs! Stop fooling around and do what you're supposed to do."

And Ana Tijoux is really kind of paying homage to all of these protesters that are saying:
"Wake up. The time is up. This is the moment that we need change!"
