Colombian/Italian artist Mariposa is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. At just 25 years old, she is redefining what Latin rap looks like today with her genre-defying sound an DIY aesthetic.  

Mariposa has been heavily influenced by a diverse range of artists, including early influences such as Pastor Lopez, Rodolfo Aicardi Y su Tipica Ra7’, Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Smino, Isaiah Rashad, and Travis Scott, and current influences like SoFaygo, Don Toliver, Gunna, Ski Mask, Kodak Black, and Cardi B.

Mariposa is the forefront of a movement that is shifting the music landscape to be more fluid and inclusive. Mariposa represents a new generation that exists between cultures, languages, genres, and whose multi-dimensional identities are the forefront.
