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, Nano is the voice of a new generation inspired by the nueva canción movement in Chile. Stern and his trio create an extraordinary fusion of indie, folk, rock, and jazz.
“As he [Stern] and Ms. Baez sang it [Gracias a la Vida], their performance generated the kind of lightning you might have experienced at a joyful ‘60s hootenanny when everything seemed possible and hope was in the air.” - New York Times
