A highly respected instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and world traveler,
Leni Stern, who is a regular visitor to New Mexico, is an artist who defies categorization. The winner of five consecutive Gibson Female Jazz Guitarist of the Year awards, her music features her trademark inventive guitar playing and vocal explorations along with the indigenous sounds of accomplished African instrumentalists and singers. Her 2016 release, Dakar Suite was described as “a celebration of sorts, a triumph of a life lived fully that inspires both dancing and quiet thought, and offers many glimpses into the travels that brought her to this point in her musical life.” In 2018, she released a follow-up trio album entitled "3," to wide critical acclaim. Last at Outpost in the fall of 2017, Stern returns with her African trio featuring, Jerome Harris, bass and Alioune Fayeon, percussion.
