Lexi Pulido is a multi-instrumentalist, music teacher, composer and vocalist based in San Diego, California. In 2019, Pulido released her first self-composed and produced album, Agency, with theatrical alt-jazz quintet, Kilikili.
Acting as a dancer and vocalist in Baby Bushka, Pulido works alongside seven powerhouse female musicians to deliver "other-worldly versions" of Kate Bush music "from the ethereal to the bombastic and back again." Pulido plays guitar with a bossa nova-inspired harmonic and rhythmic color palette, accompanying her vocals in fusion jazz duo, Lex and the Jewels, and composing guitar parts for enchanting, indie-folk group, Kaivalya. She studied jazz under the guidance of Grammy award-winning producer, Kamau Kenyatta, and has curated music as host of San Diego's popular jazz fusion jam, Nu Moods at The Quartyard since 2018.
She received her B.A. from UCSD in 2015 for Music of Jazz and the African Diaspora, where, in addition to growing her relationship with the many branches of jazz, she discovered her love for the deep treasures of both performance art and Brazilian musical styles. She has since periodically curated performances and workshops to include, Brazilian music concert collaboration with The Danny Green Trio (2017), The Music of Elis Regina (2021), collaborations with The Zicas (2016-17), Kaivalya Sound Meditation Journey at Ginseng Yoga (2019), Jam on Toast Sound Space Workshops (2020), Sound Mark Walk in Birdrock, CA (2020), Supportive characters on Miss Nati’s Music Box (2020), Baby Bushka School of Magic Patreon Content (2021), Soul Challenge at The Template (2021), and Continuum projectblanksd.org (2021).
