Kongero is: Anna Wikénius, Sofia Hultqvist Kott, Lotta Andersson, and Emma Björling
OFFICIAL PARTICIPANT OF GLOBAL MUSIC MATCH 2022
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. We released our 6th album "Live in Longueuil" in the summer 2021 and it’s been so well-received!
We push the boundaries in trad/folk/world music as well as in a cappella and chamber music. We feel it’s important to share this passion with others. By conducting our workshops and master classes we make great music and long-lasting connections with singers wherever we go. To share is to gain something new, and by sharing our tradition, knowledge, and passion we get lots of positive energy, love, and powerful musical experiences.
This journey has, since 2005, resulted in extensive touring all over Europe, Canada, Barbados, and Singapore. We have done official showcases at Folk Alliance International, Nordic Folk Alliance, Nordic Showcase, Bourse Rideau, and we are an official participant of Global Music Match 2022.
Kongero runs the festival: Nordic Folk Fest and are board members of NASC – North Atlantic Song Community.
Kongero has released 5 own full-length albums (2008, 2011, 2014, 2017, 2021), one collaboration CD with the instrumental band Massivet ‘Vaerla Vaken’ (2018), and three Song Books consisting of our workshop material.
