Quadro Nuevo is the European answer to the Argentine tango with Arabesques, Balkan swing, ballads, daredevil improvisations, the melodies of old Europe and the lightness of the Mediterranean merge into fabulous songs full of joyous colour.
Quadro Nuevo has been touring the globe since 1996 and has given over 2500 concerts. Over the course of time the quartet has established its own form of melodic poetry beyond all genre pigeon holes, unmistakably shaped by the passionate love of the instrument and the joy of making music. The secret is devotion and it is a rare experience to hear music performed with so much excitement, verve and empathy with cultures not ones own.
The Quartet’s venues are as diverse as the roots of their music and are not limited to concert halls and festivals. Quadro Nuevo’s ardent virtuosi are just as much at home busking on the piazzas of southern Europe or, as a night-time tango band, enticing audiences to dance.
As well as climbing into the Jazz and World Music Top Ten, their CDs have received the German Jazz Award and, in Paris, the European Phono Award.
The Echo, the German Phono Academy’s highest distinction, was presented to Quadro Nuevo in both 2010 and 2011 in the category “Jazz/World Music, Best Live Act”.

with special Guest:
Leo B. Jahn, he is a German and yet truely Chinese, he likes to port German songs into Chinese versions for friends. Also his own compositions feature witful German humor and reveal the romantism and class of a German gentleman. Humble singing simply accompanied by piano and yet rich in expression, the songs will take you into a both foreign and familiar realm of music.
