Singer/songwriter Nano Stern is a Chilean artist riding the crest of the new wave of Chilean Song, with a devoted following that stretches out from Chile, into Latin America, north to Canada and the USA, over to Europe and down in Australia.
His musical virtuosity, mesmerizing and charismatic live performances and his passionate and poetic advocacy for social justice result in a true and honest universal message, delivered with an intense energy and a high level of musicality, dwelling deeply into tradition whilst being contemporary with the passion of youth.
Nano's style is a Latin-Folk-Rock fusion; deeply rooted in traditional Chilean music and inspired by legends Violeta Parra, Victor 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, which results in a truly unique sound, the whole becoming greater than the sum of the parts. Stern is an accomplished musician, playing a range of instruments from Spanish and electric guitars and violin to the Andean and Nordic flutes. What has emerged is a powerhouse artist, brilliantly layering indigenous, African, and European elements into a sound all his own, and humbly bringing audiences to tears, to their feet, and to reverie with a singular kind of emotion and soulfulness unlike any other South American artist performing today.
Not to be underrated is the power and emotion that emanates from his vocal prowess and his intimate and rousing connection to his audiences, at home in Chile and across the world. His contagious personal energy and his fluency in English, German & French (among other languages) allow him to warmly include his international audiences in the stories of his Spanish songs.
