We will serve Swedish Fika in the intermission

With their voices moving together in tight harmony or intertwining in a whirling tempo, the highly acclaimed folk vocal group Kongero draws traditional Swedish music out of the past and into the present. A concert with Kongero will take the listener on a fabulous journey, an all-embracing Scandinavian folk music experience. Blue notes, amazing vocal polyphony, groovy, powerful, and intimate. The band was formed in 2005 and besides doing concerts they also conduct well-received workshops in traditional Swedish vocal music and vocal harmonies.

Kongero has released three albums. The debut ”Om Mikaelidagen” in 2008, ”Bakvända världen” in 2011, and ”no. 3” in 2014 and their music has been sampled, has appeared in movie productions, has featured on a Naxox gold album and more. Their fourth album will be released in June 2017, and will be followed by an extensive tour all over Europe and the Americas in 2017.
