We are happy to welcome Lido Pimienta to our EU/UK roster!
Lido Pimienta is a Toronto-based, Colombian-born interdisciplinary musician and artist-curator. She has performed, exhibited, and curated around the world since 2002, exploring the politics of gender, race, motherhood, identity and the construct of the Canadian landscape in the Latin American diaspora and vernacular.
Lido’s latest LP La Papessa (2016), charts an evolution from her debut LP Color (2010), an album full of (as the title suggests) colorful landscapes and positive vibrations. La Papessa, which was recently longlisted for the 2017 Polaris Music Prize, takes a more personal approach, describing the narrative of how Lido has found her independence as a woman and as an artist who refuses to fit pre-conceived notions of what a pop Latina artist ought to be.
Building momentum on a busy year that has included collaborating and performing with A Tribe Called Red, touring with Austra, publishing a graphic novel, creating visual artworks and contributing to art talks and exhibitions. In November, she heads to Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik.
