At age 19, Lido Pimienta moved from Colombia to Canada to pursue her artistic career – And she still has complicated feelings about the country she grew up in. She explores these feelings in her new album, Miss Colombia, which has been nominated for Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album at the 2020 Grammys. Lido joins host Raina Douris today to share about her move across continents, and how that led her to change her music dramatically. Plus, Lido performs some of the new songs live. Coming up, on the next World Cafe.
