Free lecture/demo by Nano Stern, Nov. 4, noon, Weis Center Lobby
Nano will conduct a workshop "in-the-round" on the history of Latin American music, from indigenous times, through the influence of the Spanish Conquistadors and the arrival of African slaves. He explains the songs, stories and styles that he has learned from his winding travels across Latin America, from his home of Chile, up to Cuba. Nano will also demonstrate his unique percussive guitar playing style. Facilitated by Bucknell Professor Elisabeth Guerrero.
Singer/songwriter Nano Stern is a Chilean artist riding the crest of the new wave of Chilean song. Nano's 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 while being contemporary with the passion of youth. 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 its 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.
