Nano Stern Sings Víctor Jara

"Stern's appearance produced the kind of lighting you could have experienced in the '60s when everything seemed possible and hope was in the air." — The New York Times

Praised by folk legend Joan Baez as “the best young Chilean songwriter of his generation,” Nano Stern commemorates the 50th anniversary of Chile’s coup d’etat by performing the songs of legendary Chilean folk singer and slain political activist Víctor Jara, whose music and poetry marked the spirit of his day.

Armed with only his guitar and his staggering vocals, Stern gives new breath to Jara’s immortal repertoire, interspersing it with his own richly crafted songs, that blends the youthful exuberance of folk music against the powerful force of traditional Chilean revolutionary songs.

Expect a poignant musical dialogue across time between two Chilean songwriters and political activists delivered by one powerful voice.

Join us on Thursday, October 19 at 8 pm for a screening of Nano Stern’s new documentary film We’ll be Singing by September, a feature documentary exploring the history, development and transcendence of Chilean music during the socialist government of Salvador Allende, co-produced by Nano Stern.
