Lido Pimienta

Co-presented by FLAWA & Rockfeedback

We proudly present the twice Grammy-nominated and Polaris Prize-winning artist, Lido Pimienta. The visionary artist returns to London following the release of her emphatic 2020 album, Miss Colombia.


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 latest album Miss Colombia takes her ecstatic hybridity to a new level, building on the “nu” intersection of electronica and cumbia established by her first two albums, Color, released in 2010, and the 2017 Polaris Prize-winning La Papessa, as Canadian album of the year. Miss Colombia has only continued to grow Lido’s presence, with the album garnering multiple award nominations including a 2020 Latin Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album, and a 2021 Grammy nomination for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album.

Produced with Matt Smith, a/k/a Prince Nifty, Miss Colombia overflows with understated genius and continues to chart Pimienta’s evolution into an independent woman and artist who refuses to fit into pre-conceived notions of what a pop Latina artist ought to be.
