Lido Pimienta is a Colombian born, Toronto-based interdisciplinary Afro-Indigenous artist who is also known as “Colombian darling” and “Soundsister” in both the mainstream and underground global bass movement. Pimienta exists in a roulette of musical journeys from traditional Colombian percussion to darker avant-garde electronic soundscapes, all united by her piercing and explosive yet heartwarming voice. Waving the flag for intersectional feminism, sex positivity and human rights, Lido Pimienta is a force ready to take over the world.
