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.
