The Nano Stern Band Returns to Brisbane

Back by popular demand, acclaimed Chilean guitarist and singer songwriter Nano Stern returns to Brisbane, this time flanked by Chile’s hottest young folk, rock and jazz musicians, performing at the Judith Wright Centre on Saturday 19 March 2011.

Bringing audiences to their feet at theatres and festivals across South America, Europe and Australia, 24-year-old Nano Stern says he is excited about returning to Australia with his band and repertoire that seeks to “rejuvenate” traditional Chilean, Latin American and international folk music.
“I am so extremely happy to be able to visit Australia with the guys. With them, I get to deepen the Latin American root of my own music, as well as presenting the audience with an interesting and dynamic journey through our traditional repertoire.
“We play our music with immense respect to the tradition but also a bit of an irreverent attitude, which allows many other influences to find its way into the  music. I would say we are all rockers at heart, playing traditional music with the energy of youth and the power of experience.”
Making their Brisbane debut, The Nano Stern Band will be performing for the first time in Australia since Nano’s thundering reception at Woodford Folk Festival in 2008.
Nano Stern returned for a solo Australian tour in 2009, performing to critical acclaim at venues and festivals including Judith Wright Centre, Port Fairy and National Folk Festivals among others, and broadcast live on ABC Radio's Music Deli.
Audiences can expect to hear music from Nano’s last self-produced album, Los Espejos (ranked #3 by Rolling Stone Chile in their top 100 albums for 2009) as well new music from his imminent fourth album – to be recorded in April 2011.
Picking up violin at age three and guitar at age six, Nano‘s music incorporates guitar, violin, Swedish flute and lyrics written in Spanish, Macedonian, Italian, Swedish and English.
As a teenager, Nano was a member of Matoral and Mecanica Popular, two of Chile's leading rock and folk bands of the time.
In 2004, at age 18, Nano packed his bags and moved to Europe to explore the continent’s jazz and gypsy music scene, during which time he worked with producer Tato Gomez and achieved a strong European following.
To coincide with his Brisbane performance, Nano Stern will also be running workshops on the history of Latin music. Drawing on his winding travels across Latin America, from his home of Chile and up to Cuba, Nano will demonstrate and explain the songs, stories and music styles from Indigenous times through to the present day.

“...exudes authenticity and the sheer love of making music… one of the concert highlights of the year so far.” The Age, 2009
