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 US, over to Europe and 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.
Nano’s style is an Indie‐Folk‐Rock‐Jazz 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. 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.
Nano’s stature in Chile has risen to the point of being woven into Chile’s cultural history. His albums sit at the top of the download charts and have received unanimous critical praise. He fills theaters and halls across the country, performs at Chile’s biggest festivals, and is a consistently intelligent and compassionate voice in the national media.
His contagious personal energy and his fluency in English, German, and French, (among other languages) allow him to warmly include his international audiences in the stories of his Spanish songs.
