Hometown: Toronto, Canada

Why We're Excited: A Colombian-born artist and electro-pop musician now based in Toronto, Lido Pimienta made the first Spanish-language recording (2016's La Papessa) ever to win Canada's prestigious Polaris Prize. In April, she returns with Miss Colombia, a new collection of splashy, spangly songs about tangled identity, queer love and the complicated relationship she's maintained with the country of her birth.
