Event Preview: Lido Pimienta @ King’s Place (London; Thursday 12th May 2022)
The pandemics might have “robbed” Londoners, among too many other things, of FLAWA‘s (The Festival of Latin American Women in the Arts) 2020 and 2021 editions, so for 2022 the festival organisers are making up for the lost time going the whole hog and doing things in style…in a very FLAWA style.
…and after hosting Luzmila Carpio, Colectiva and Desta French, on Thursday the 12th of May, FLAWA family tempts us to Kings Place in King’s Cross with the far-reaching artistry of Lido Pimienta.
Based in Toronto but born in Barranquilla with Afro-Colombian and Waaju descent, the singer/songwriter and activist has constantly employed music as a social agent to reach people, awaken them and create connections, rediscovering and asserting her roots at the same time.
That’s how by listening to her music, you will go through a journey in the past, present and future of the Afro-Latin sound
…and that’s how, after having released three intense and incisive albums, Lido has grown into one of the brightest, loudest and undoubtedly most original voices of the contemporary Latin music scene.
Get ready to experience a musical epiphany because Lido Pimienta is one of those musicians whose artistry won’t leave you indifferent.
