Kongero are a highly esteemed, world touring Swedish Folk’appella group. A concert with Kongero will take the listener on a fabulous journey, an all-embracing Scandinavian folk music experience.

Amazing vocal polyphony, groovy, intimate, and powerful. The group released their 6th album Live in Longueuil in 2021 and Vaerla Vaken, a collaboration CD with the group Massivet, in late 2019. They conduct well-received workshops and master classes worldwide and has published two Songbooks with material for workshops and choirs.

This group is a revelation. The beauty of the four voices is equaled only by the pristine, flawless arrangements. They provide a stunning example of a marriage between the traditional and the innovative. This magical Swedish music very much deserves to be heard far and wide.” (Jeff Meshel, International Music Journalist).

Kongero will also be running a workshop before the show for all singers interested in learning Swedish folk songs and traditional Scandinavian music. It will be a delightful and fun Swedish Folk’appella singing experience.

In our workshops we teach songs and tunes in 2- to 5-part harmony – all by ear. We work and experiment with genre specific sounds, grooves, articulation, improvisation, and ornaments. You will get tips and feed-back on vocal technique, intonation, tools for improving your singing together, basic arranging ideas, and we always have a lovely and fun time singing. The workshop will be held in English but we will sing in Swedish. The perfect crash course in to Swedish traditional singing tradition.

The workshop will be held in The Kitchen Garden, before the concert at 5.30pm.

The four Kongero singers are all skilled and experienced workshop leaders. Two of us are educated vocal teachers and hold university degrees in singing and vocal technique. We have released two Song Books with the songs and arrangements we teach.
