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. Her new album Miss Colombia takes her ecstatic hybridity to a new level, building on the
"nu" intersection of electronica and cumbia established by her 2016 Polaris Prize-winning La Papessa as
Canadian album of the year. Produced with Matt Smith, a/k/a Prince Nifty, Miss Colombia overflows with
the kind of understated genius that promises yet another breakthrough.
