Thank you for the music! Time to say thank you and to celebrate!
For 15 years now Swedish all-female vocal folk quartet Kongero have been singing traditional Scandinavian songs in self-penned arrangements and the best a cappella tradition. But Lotta Andersson, Emma Björling, Anna Larsson and Anna Wikenius are also skilled in composing on their own, including setting poems to music. The ensemble took its name – meaning “spider” in English – from a regional dialect of their home area, the province of Jämtland in northern Sweden.
“Kongero bring Scandinavian traditional music into the 21st century,” the international press is raving and comparing the ensemble to their fellow countrymen The Real Group. Five studio albums the four Swedes have to their name so far while consistently seeking to pass on their knowledge and experience in regular workshops. They came together in 2005 when the original members all attended a Nordic folk music conference.
To celebrate their 15th anniversary, Kongero are making a present both to themselves and to their many fans all around the world by releasing a live album that has them look back with gratitude and happiness on their many concerts in Europe, North America and Asia.
