Lido Pimienta ft (feat. Li Saumet) - Nada
Lido Pimienta has been making waves globally ever since her 2016 Polaris Prize-Winning album of the year. Her music blends Afro, Indigenous, Colombian, Canadian, punk, and traditional musical styles (to name a few). Known for her stunning visuals and meaningful lyrics, Pimienta is here to make her mark.
Lido draws her inspiration from acts like A Tribe Called Red, Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq, and Cardi B. Her recent album, Miss Colombia, has earned a 2021 Grammy Nomination for Best Latin Rock, Urban, or Alternative Album, and it won as Best Alternative Album at the 2020 Latin Grammys.
Nada, a song and video off the album, features Colombian artist Li Saumet. It speaks about the trials and tribulations of motherhood and the toll it can take on a woman's mental and physical health. Shot in the tropical paradise of Costeño Beach, Colombia, the pair are seen dressed in intricate lace gowns, attached by braids to one another sitting peacefully with their children until Lido collapses and surrenders to the river.
