Leni Stern Trio
February 9 @ 7:30 pm - March 9 @ 9:30 pm$18 – $22
An unstoppable force of bottomless energy, Leni Stern’s long-time fans know her from a successful jazz career that saw her touring the globe on the stage of every major festival and legendary club. Everything changed when, in 2005, Stern was first invited to perform at the Festival au Desert in Timbuktu, Mali. It was there that she dove headfirst into the traditions of West African guitar and later the n’goni, an African banjo. It was a natural path from jazz, a journey to where her playing and sound all began, a spiritual exploration coupled with devoted study and practice. Stern’s recent compositions pay humble homage to the drum patterns of traditional Senegalese folk songs. What emerges is a new repertoire of cross-pollinated ideas and reverence to jazz, blues, Africa, and folk music of today’s diaspora. Tickets are available at the discounted pre-show price of $18 or $22 at the door.
