Polaris Prize Winning Latinx Artist Lido Pimienta Signs to ANTI- Records, 'La Papessa' Re-Issue Coming Fall 2018

ANTI- Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Lido Pimienta, a Toronto-based and Colombian-born musician and artist.

“I am overjoyed to start this new chapter with ANTI- and give my all to delivering beautiful music and connecting with more people,” said Pimienta. “I am ready to work together with this great team and be the best artist I know I can be.”

In 2016, Pimienta’s album La Papessa was the first 100% independently released and the first non-English-or-French album to win Canada’s prestigious Polaris prize. ANTI- will re-issue La Papessa this fall and release it on vinyl for the first time.

“Pimienta’s soprano voice anchors technicolor basslines, baroque strings, and militaristic snares, as she comes to realize that self-efficacy is the armor needed to combat tribulations both public and private,” said Pitchfork of the record.

Pimienta 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. She begins a worldwide tour including dates in Europe, the US and Canada this Friday, June 1 in Dudingen, Switzerland. All upcoming dates are listed below.
