SWEDEN | 2022 PARTICIPANT
Kongero is a highly esteemed, world touring Swedish Folk’appella group singing powerful, evocative, haunting music. A concert with Kongero will take the listener on a fabulous journey, an all-embracing Scandinavian folk music experience. Amazing vocal polyphony, groovy, and powerful. As Jeff Meshel, an international music journalist put it: “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.”
Kongero released their highly acclaimed 6th album “Live in Longueuil” in the summer of 2021. They have been part of many other band’s recordings, and they also conduct ground breaking workshops and master classes.
Kongero has toured all over the world and performed at the major festivals and venues for folk/trad music, vocal/choir music, and chamber music. They were part of ‘Vi Brinner’, an opera composed specifically for their 4 voices. Kongero has also done collaborations with bands like Massivet (SE), Skye Consort (SE/CAN), and De Temps Antan (QC, CAN).
