Hip-hop monolinguists take note: The revolution may not be translated, but it will be amplified this weekend when the French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux brings her combination of dusty grooves and percussive rhymes to two Bay Area venues. The Grammy-nominated, NPR-hyped, Thom Yorke–approved Tijoux raps in rapid but intelligible and intelligent Spanish (and occasionally French) with an urgent, husky flow that belies her pixieish appearance. On her latest album, 1977 — her fifth, but the first to see stateside release — she keeps it conscious, personally and politically, over a range of appealing beats that hit most of the genre's major stylistic points since, well, 1977.
