The Real Group: A groundbreaking vocal group based in Sweden.With the voice as their sole instrument they have created a unique musical expression in the field between jazz, pop and Nordic European vocal music.The group has toured worldwide since it was formed in 1984.

The combination of perfection and personal touch along with original songs have made them accessible to music enthusiasts in general as well as to the more demanding ear.In 1989 the group graduated from The Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm with the highest degree and since then they have often been asked to perform at prestigious official events along with their regular concerts. Such an event was the Swedish queen’s birthday when they performed the Abba classic ”Dancing Queen” together with the former Abba member Anni- Frid Lyngstad. The group also sang at the opening of the Fifa World Cup in South Korea and Japan.

Their wide repertoire has made it possible for the group to collaborate with symphony orchestras, jazz groups, pop bands and artists such as opera star Barbara Hendricks, jazz harmonica player Toots Thielemans and The Beatles producer sir George Martin.The Real Group has made 24 albums in their own name. They have produced their own concert tours with over 2.800 concerts worldwide. They have hosted their own TV show and been artistic directors for vocal music festivals in USA and South Korea and produced their own festivals in Sweden and Finland where the educational branch The Real Group Academy has contributed with the educational content.

The group has toured as ambassadors for the charity program Star For Life in Sweden and South Africa as part of an AIDS prevention program.
