Dear friends and fans of Kongero, we are so happy to share our new live album with you, Live in Longueuil! For 15 years we’ve been writing music, exploring and singing traditional Swedish songs, giving them new life, painting them in our favourite colours, taking them to our hearts and out on the road. Together we have metaphorically and literally walked through rain, snow, storms, and sunshine, over mountains, through valleys, over meadows, and along beaches. We’ve seen the largest of cities, and the tiniest of villages. And we’ve loved it all. We feel truly blessed to have met so many wonderful people and seen so many beautiful places on our journey so far. And we hope for many more tours to come. 
-This album has captured a moment in time, one concert out of thousands, one day in our lives.-

“... and my, my, what a birthday present for anyone with ears to hear. On a mix of traditional and self-composed pieces, they shine with a crystalline brilliance.”
- Chris Nickson RootsWorld USA, 2021. Om Live in Longueuil 

"The vocal harmonies are, as usual, heartbreakingly virtuoso, crystal clear and intense, full of tension that dissolves into lovely harmonies" - Alexandra Ullsten, Lira 2021. Om Live in Longueuil

"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, Music Journalist Israel

REVIEWS

“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

"I normally don't like A Cappella groups, but when they keep the pitch and are as amusing as Kongero, I love it!  Four skilled soloists that can sing together as one voice."
