When Lido Pimienta was nineteen, she left her home country of Colombia and moved to Canada to pursue her art. As an immigrant, she faced challenges and complicated feelings about both the country where she was born and the country she emigrated to. On the next World Cafe, Pimienta talks about how those experiences inform her latest album Miss Colombia and shares some live performances.
World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App! Download it today for your favorite mobile device.
