Says NPR: "Miss Colombia — which deftly mixes folk genres like cumbia, bullerengue and porro with modern and orchestral production — takes a thread and needle from Pimienta's heart to a country that doesn't always love her back."
The First Listen is the latest in a growing list of highlights in celebration of Miss Colombia. The songs released over the past two months have been featured on NPR’s Top Songs of February & New York Times’ weekly playlist - who called it "a substantial cultural statement" - alongside additional co-signs from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Nylon, Fader, Billboard, i-D, Refinery29, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, Cool Hunting, and beyond. Pitchfork also included it in the Most Anticipated Albums of Spring preview.
On Friday, release day, Lido will be taking over Pitchfork’s Instagram Live at 8pm ET to perform songs from the album from her home. The performance will direct viewers to a GoFundMe page that is collecting resources for Wayuu families quarantined in Colombia due to the coronavirus pandemic.
