Created in July 1994, the jazz quartet No Square was founded and led by the German bassist, André Hahne. The group has already produced 9 albums and has toured around the world. “The initial idea was to develop a living, energetic jazz. Our music has developed as a group, not just as individuals but shared equally. What motivates and animates us is playing live. ” The jazz of No Square is composed of simple melodies and of more complex binary grooves inspired by poly rhythms and odd measures developed in contemporary jazz. No Square has also created and produced music for many creations and theater pieces.
The band has widely toured around the world and is preparing its 10th album, “Bad Bus “for 2018. Their tour received the support of Pro Helvetia Shanghai, Swiss Arts Council.
