Community talking circle
Pimienta is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary musician and artist-curator of Colombian and indigenous Wayuu descent. She has performed, exhibited and curated around the world since Since 2002, she has explored the politics of gender, race, motherhood, identity and the construct of the Canadian landscape in the Latin American diaspora and vernacular. Her 2017 Polaris Prize-nominated album, La Papessa, describes narrative of how Pimienta has found her independence as a woman and as an artist who refuses to fit pre-conceived notions of what a pop Latina artist ought to be. A 6:30 p.m. community talking circle precedes the concert.
