Leni Stern’s restless musical curiosity took her from Germany (where she was born) to the United States (where she studied at Berklee College of Music) to Mali (where she picked up the traditional African banjo known as the n’goni). The guitarist and singer made a splash in the jazz world in the early 1980s, but in more recent years she has focused her attention on the music of West Africa. Her album Jelell (2013) was recorded in Senegal with Mamadou Ba (bass) and a family of percussionists led by Alioune Faye. She comes to Gig Performance Space (1808 Second St.) with her African Trio on Sunday, May 11. Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show cost $20 at the door. Visit www.gigsantafe.com
