Radio Hour with Lido Pimienta
Colombian-Canadian artist Lido Pimienta crafts gorgeous, sophisticated pop with structures informed by the Afro-Latin and indigenous music she grew up with. With only three full-length releases to her name, she’s already amassed a career’s worth of critical acclaim: her 2017 LP La Papessa won her the prestigious Polaris music prize, and her phenomenal 2020 album, Miss Colombia was nominated for a Juno and two Grammys. Lido recently joined Host Elia Einhorn for a deep and wide-ranging conversation. They touch on her early artistic influences; her long standing mentorship from, and collaboration with, childhood idols Sexteto Tabala; and how the orchestral pieces she composed for the New York City Ballet are informing an upcoming album that celebrates the sublime in Caribbean culture. _ Listen to Radio Hour each week on Sonos Radio To learn more about all of our amazing Sonos Sound System programming and sign up for a free 30 day trial for Sonos Radio HD, visit sonos.com/sonos-radio
