× Powerhouse Chilean musician Nano Stern weaves together the fierce spirit of traditional Chilean revolutionary song with African and European elements to create a ground-breaking sound entirely his own.
Hailed by folk legend Joan Baez as “the best young Chilean songwriter of his generation,” Stern brings a masterful command of multiple instruments, staggering vocal range and passionate advocacy to his fresh and relevant his music: folk, rock and trova, infused with the depth of classical and jazz training that transcends borders, languages, and cultures. On stage, Stern nimbly blends Spanish and electric guitars, piano, violin and Andean and Nordic flutes into his songs, singing in Spanish and telling stories in English to give context to his songs.
Stern recently released his ninth album I Still Believe in Beauty. The career-defining record is a culmination of sonic and lyrical exploration that has expanded his creative horizons.
Nano Stern begun his musical life at the age of three while picking up the violin and now stands out as one of the most influential Chilean musicians, performing at countless international venues and festivals. Last year, Stern toured the world, released an album and produced the documentary We’ll Be Singing by September - all paying homage to the legacy of Víctor Jara, the Chilean folk musician and political activist whose life and career were tragically cut short during a military coup in 1973. Stern sees himself as part of a continuum of artists with a responsibility to honor the past and build a foundation for the future. “The maestro’s ultra-soulful singing (in passionate, atmospheric Spanish) and virtuosity on guitar and violin are never less than mesmeric.” - Week End Australian “The spirit of the late Victor Jara and Violeta Parra hovers over the singer-songwriter as he digs deep into his inner worlds and landscapes. Aesthetic beauty abounds, musically and poetically.”- Rhythms Magazine
