Miss Colombia displays an artist who has a clear vision combined with a desire to experiment with sounds.


There are many layers in Miss Colombia's 11 vivid tracks, all of which are well-worth exploring.


‘Miss Colombia’ is an impressive, experimental collection, filled with complex, crunching production and romantic lyrics that recount love and loss.

Rolling Stone

The organic, delightfully earnest tracks blend Miss Colombia‘s avant-Latin sonic palette with revered cross-generational traditions, forging a new world of musical borderlessness that Pimienta is glad to call home.

Her music seemed like a vibrant electronic protest flag that blends traditional instrumentation with forward-thinking production and sharp melodies. Her newest album, Miss Colombia, delves deeper into the connection between Pimienta's personal heritage and the contemporary musical landscape. The music is less resolved and more ... read more
Miss Columbia feels like a pretty good representation of Latin Music, in both the best and worst ways. Lido Pimienta’s voice is beautiful and holds a lot of power. At the album’s best moments, Lido’s guiding melodies were carrying me over a beautiful soundscape, that beautiful soundscape being the instrumentals of this album. They’re this fusion of art pop, electronic, and Latin music, though there is more of an emphasis on the Latin music side here. There are some truly ... read more
