Amandititita (born Amanda Lalena Escalante Pimentel; June 15, 1982) is a Mexican singer and songwriter of cumbia. She is the daughter of the late Rodrigo Gonzalez, a noted musician and poet who died in the 1985 Mexico City earthquake .

She came to public attention in 2007 as a performer of what she called 'AnarCumbia', a style said to be entirely urban and a blend of rock, reggae, rap, and traditional Mexican cumbia. From this, she has become known as the self-proclaimed 'Queen of AnarCumbia' and claims her main inspiration to be Guillermo Fadanelli.

She was signed by Sony-BMG and released her first album, La Reina de Anarcumbia, early in 2008. The single, La Muy Muy, from this album, charted on Billboard.

The release of her second album has been announced for October 27, 2009; "La Descarada" with songs of a similar style.
