© Léa Lanoë

“Die Hochstapler” (The Impostors) have developed a highly personal style based on collective composition, radical individualism and oral communication. Poetry, alphabets and game structures serve as a basis for the common memory basket from which the four players are drawing in every performance in a new and unpredictable way. Their work is documented on five albums and has been presented in festivals and venues all over Europe.

“Few working bands have been able to find so much vitality and invention in the building blocks of improvisation.” Peter Margasak, Downbeat
