A master at his own musical language, Nano Stern has created a sound that blends his youthful expression of the folk music of Chile with his dedication to the traditional and indigenous music of Latin America and Classical training.
Known for being political, outspoken, and passionate, audiences at Nano Stern’s Los Angeles debut at The Theatre at Ace Hotel can expect an immersive experience and a close connection that Stern is known for with every performance. There is a rare power and beauty to a Nano Stern performance. He best describes his musical ethic as being “able to vibrate strongly,” and in turn, the audience resonates. “We can put aside words, and genre, and tradition. In the end, it is all about a movement of air that makes our bodies move. It’s the most mysterious thing.”
Praised by folk legend and CAP UCLA alum Joan Baez as “the best young Chilean
songwriter of his generation,” Stern is skilled across a range of instruments and languages and unites his talents to create a sound both utterly fresh and relevant. Nano’s closest companions on stage remain simply his guitar and staggering vocals. His fluency in Spanish and English allows Nano to warmly include his North American audiences in the stories of his Spanish songs.
