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. Amazing vocal polyphony, groovy, intimate, and powerful. The group released their 4th album ‘Kom’ in 2017 and ‘Vaerla Vaken’, a collaboration CD with the group Massivet, in late 2018. They conduct well-received workshops and masterclasses worldwide and has published two Songbooks with material for workshops and choirs.

“Terrific. Like camping out in a Swedish forest and hearing tales of joy, love, sadness, errant cattle, Estonian islands & too many beers. KONGERO made the audience’s heart sing with their soaring, blended vocal dexterity and charm.” - Adrian Mealing, UK Touring
“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
