The Rebel Beat 080: Lido Pimienta on motherhood, music & fending off the trolls

 

Welcome to the latest episode of The Rebel Beat, a Firebrand Records podcast!

This is our year end episode, and it is a HUGE one. Every year, the Polaris Music Prize is awarded for the best album in Canada, as selected by a jury of music journalists. The winner of that award in 2017 was Lido Pimienta for her album “La Papessa”. Lido is a queer Indigenous afro-Colombian musician who lives in Toronto, she is rad as fuck, she is never shy to speak her mind, and she is our guest today on The Rebel Beat. Check out Lido’s music and buy her stuff here.

Rebel Beat Special: Suena A Revolucion

 

On this special edition of The Rebel Beat, we bring you an interview with our sister podcast, Suena A Revolucion! Check them out at www.suenaarevolucion.org.

We had a chance to present on a panel at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit earlier this summer with two of the hosts of Suena, Paola Quiros and Krusheska Quiros. This is a little interview we did with them on the grass outside the conference, just before a big rain storm!

If you’ve never heard of Suena A Revolucion, it’s an amazing Spanish-language podcast that profiles revolutionary, and especially feminist music from across Latin America. Even if you don’t understand Spanish, you’ll love the music, so check it out!

Welcome back for another weekly edition of The Rebel Beat! This week it’s our favourite time of the month, that time when Frank from Sumedia.tv comes in to studio to share what’s been going down on his TV show, and play some wicked riotous tunes.

This week, we have an interview with Austin, TX-based anarchist organizer and author Scott Crow, talking about the shit-show that is the US election circus. We also talked about recent global anti-fascist and feminist actions against Pegida and Roosh V (a so-called “Pick-Up Artists” who supports the legalization of rape). And, because the WHOLE WORLD was talking about it, we threw in a bit of Super Bowl 50 commentary. But don’t worry, just a bit 😉

And of course, plenty of revolutionary music. See the amazing playlist below! Continue reading
