Kongero is a Swedish vocal group, whose music is characterized by tight harmonies, inciting rhythms, and the clarity of four beautiful voices: 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 venues and festivals and at several a cappella and chamber music festivals, as well as doing tours in Europe, Asia and The Americas.
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. With confidence, technical skill, irresistible playfulness and brilliant arrangements, they create a unique sound – Swedish Folk’apella – that brings the traditional music from past to present. With over 10 years touring as a group and three full length studio CDs, Kongero will bring to Harrison a charming and sweet sounding concert of Nordic vocal music.
