A powerful blend of sounds and influences on a new 'La Alternativa'

Daniella Murillo

Lido Pimienta is a Colombian-Canadian musician known for her powerful voice and eclectic musical style that blends electronic, Afro-Colombian and Indigenous influences. You can hear it all in her new song, “He Venido al Mar.”

Currently on tour with Chicano Batman, Pimienta saw her new track featured in the comedy-drama movie Calladita ("The Quiet Maid") directed by Miguel Faus. The song was released in an extended and short version, and its title translates to “I’ve Come Down to the Sea.”

“He Venido al Mar” is a follow-up of sorts to Pimienta's 2020 album Miss Colombia, which further cemented her reputation as a bold and visionary artist. The project incorporates traditional cumbia rhythms, electronic beats and her distinct vocal style to explore the complexities of Colombian identity while critiquing beauty standards and colonial legacies.

Listen to Pimienta's new track below and hear music like this every Sunday from 5 to 6 p.m. on 88Nine and again from 10 to 11 p.m. on HYFIN.
