Kongero

Kongero band looking at each other

Kongero is a Swedish vocal group, consisting of the four female folk music singers Lotta Andersson, Emma Björling, Anna Larsson and Anna Wikénius. Kongero was formed in 2005 when the original members all attended a Nordic folk music conference. By chance they started singing together and found that their voices and harmonies blended perfectly. Since then they have performed at many of the major folk music scenes and festivals and at several a cappella and chamber music festivals aswell as doing tours in Europe, Asia and The Americas. They also do well-received church concerts, school concerts, tours, perform at business events, and conduct workshops in traditional Swedish vocal music and vocal harmonies.

Kongero’s repertoire consists of traditional and original songs and tunes arranged by the members. Kongero tells tales of life, with moving love songs, dramatic medieval ballads, witty ditties, and spirited dances. Their music is characterized by tight harmonies, inciting rhythms, and the clarity of their beautiful voices. With confidence, technical skill, irresistible playfulness and brilliant arrangements, they create a unique sound that brings the traditional music from past to present. They call the genre Swedish Folk’apella.
