Leni Stern

Leni Stern - Fisherman

Leni Stern (NYC) has fearlessly led bands with guitar in hand for over 25 years. She has won numerous guitar, songwriting and composition awards, and just recently she was named one of the 50 most sensational female jazz guitarists of all time by Guitar Player Magazine (2017). Her trio features Senegalese master musicians Mamadou Ba (bass) and Alioune Faye (percussion/vocals) performing originals featuring Leni's unique style which seamlessly melds American Jazz, Blues and Rock with West African tonalities and rhythms. Leni can be seen in the feature documentary "The Last Song Before the War" about the Festival au Desert in Timbuktu where she performed for many years before the coup d'etat.
