About Kongero (http://www.kongero.se)

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 toured the world (Europe, North America, and Asia) and has released five studio albums: ”Om Mikaelidagen” in 2008, ”Bakvända världen” in 2011, ”no. 3” in 2014, "KOM" in 2017 and a collaboration CD with Massivet in 2018. Their music has been sampled, has appeared in movie productions, on a Naxos gold compilation album etc.

They've also released two Song Books with some of their most appreciated workshop material.
