Lido Pimienta

Few artists are as outspoken as Lido Pimienta. Her album La Papessa (‘High Priestess’) sounds like a plan for war in which love must ultimately prevail, where women will ultimately gain the upper hand. With roots in both Colombia and Canada, Pimienta’s shows can be considered equally performance art and concert. Pimienta won the Polaris Music Prize last year, the prestigious Canadian jury prize for pop music, dubbing her the future of Canadian rock ‘n roll. We can’t wait to introduce her to you at Best Kept Secret.
