Kongero in Concert

Date: Sun­day Octo­ber 15, 2017
Time: 1pm to 3pm. Doors open 12.30pm
Cost: Tick­ets at the door $20. Cash only. Advance tick­ets avail­able here
Con­tact: Swedishculturalsociety.ca@nullgmail.com
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.
