Sheroes Mixtape Memoir with Lido Pimienta

Lido Pimienta spent the formative years of her life in Colombia, but as a teenager, had to flee the violence and turmoil in her home country and immigrated to Canada, where she is still based. Lido's absolutely astounding voice and her sound has evolved into a trailblazing, multi-layered hybrid of Afro-Latin and electronic music, always with her lyrical activism, and feminism intact, and her signature interplay of loudness and softness. For this episode of Mixtape Memoir, Lido and host Carmel Holt discuss how her teenage rebellion ended up rejecting pop music and embracing traditional Colombian sounds, and finding her outsider community in the DIY and punk scene of Toronto.
