About the event

Swedish, acapella quartet Kongero will be delivering a workshop and concert as part of their 2015 international tour. Promoting their latest album entitled ‘No.3’, Kongero draws traditional Swedish music out of the past and into the present.

Kongero tell tales of life with moving love songs, dramatic medieval ballads, witty ditties, and spirited dances. Their music is characterized by tight harmonies, inciting rhythms and the clarity of their beautiful voices. With confidence, technical skill, irresistible playfulness and brilliant arrangements, they create a unique sound that brings the traditional music from past to present.

Kongero Workshop

The half-day, “Swedish Folk’apella” workshop at The VoiceBox will be of Swedish folk songs and folk tunes in 2-4 part harmonies, arranged by Kongero. There will be some comparison between British and Swedish traditional music and some tips on how to arrange vocal music in simple and efficient ways. Holders of a combined concert & workshop ticket will also be given the opportunity to perform onstage with Kongero during the concert.
