Singer-songwriter Nano Stern is a Chilean artist riding the crest of the new wave of Chilean Song, with a devoted following worldwide. Stern’s style is an indie-folk-rock-jazz fusion, deeply rooted in traditional Chilean music and inspired by legends Violeta Parra, Víctor Jara, and Inti-Illimani, yet combined with a host of influences absorbed from his travels around the world, as well as his early classical training. Added to the mix is a love for rock and a poetic advocacy for social justice, resulting in a truly unique sound that humbly brings audiences to reverie.
Stern’s rise to fame has been meteoric, with a recording career spanning five years and four award-winning and critically acclaimed solo albums, including San Diego 850, a live 2-CD/DVD set from his 2013 concert at the Teatro Caupolicán (Santiago, Chile). His fifth studio album, released in 2015, Mil 500 Vueltas, features guests Jorge Drexler, Susana Baca, and Joan Baez. Stern has consistently been the stand-out new act at such festivals as WOMAD (UK, Chile, and Adelaide); Lincoln Center Outdoors (New York); SXSW (Texas); and Woodford Folk Festival (Australia).
