LIDO PIMIENTA signs to KELP MANAGEMENT

We're thrilled to announce the addition of Lido Pimienta to the Kelp Management roster.

Lido Pimienta is a Toronto-based, Colombian born interdisciplinary musician and artist-curator. She has performed, exhibited, and curated around the world since 2002, exploring the politics of gender, race, motherhood, identity and the construct of the Canadian landscape in the Latin American diaspora and vernacular.

Her most recent album La Papessa was self-released in October 2016, building momentum on a busy year that has included collaborating and performing with A Tribe Called Red, touring with Austra, publishing a graphic novel, creating visual artworks and contributing to art talks and exhibitions. The summer ahead includes festival appearances at Luminato, Pride Toronto, Sappyfest, Up Here, and Venus Festival; in November, she heads to Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik.

We are beyond excited to be working with this incredibly talented, innovative, and daring multi-disciplinary artist. Dig into La Papessa and check out the video for "La Capacidad" below.
