New Sounds From South America: Nano Stern
Friday May 4, 7pm
Elebash Hall, 365 5th Ave
Joan Baez has called Nano Stern “the best young Chilean songwriter of his generation.” A powerhouse singer-songwriter and activist, Stern brilliantly layers indigenous, African, and European elements into a sound all his own. Political, articulate, passionate, and experimental, Stern mixes a punk-rock background with classical and jazz training and the deeply rooted influences of traditional Chilean revolutionary music from the nueva canción movement.
