Irma Ruiseñor is a multi-hyphenate working within Mexico City's bubbling underground scene, having operated as an audiovisual artist, cultural promoter and producer for over a decade.
She first cut her teeth as a radio host with her podcast Sorry I'm Late, which has seen her host episodes with the likes of NAAFI, Deeplinkin, Turning Torso, Ziúr and Flørist, to name a few.
