Colombian-born, Toronto-based Lido Pimienta describes herself as an “interdisciplinary musician and artist curator,” which basically means that her artistic palette includes everything from sounds to art, fashion, and politics. Musically, her newest album, La Papessa (nominated last year for a Polaris Prize), is a musical travelogue built on an engine of afrobeat backgrounds and EDM foregrounds, treading interesting lines between tribal jazz and electronica. Lyrically, hers is a distinctly Latin American POV, sharing her take on both Canada-centric topics as well as on more universal themes of gender, identity, race, and what it means to raise a child in this increasingly fugazi world.
