Lido Pimienta presents songs from the follow-up album to 2017’s Polaris Prize-winning La Papessa. Performing with horns, winds and a choir, this performance is a sneak peak into the world of Miss Colombia showcasing new works in their rawest form, the way they were intended to be performed when they were originally composed. Miss Colombia explores the simultaneous closeness and distance of Pimienta’s relationship to her homeland. Songs will be arranged by Halifax-based musician and composer Robert Drisdelle.
Opening is OKAN, who are featured on the Miss Colombia album. OKAN is led by Elizabeth Rodriguez and Magdelys Savigne, who fuse their Afro-Cuban roots with jazz, folk and global rhythms in songs about immigration, courage and love.
