Kongero are known at home for bringing the traditional music of Sweden’s past into the present. Their dramatic medieval ballads, spirited dance numbers, moving love songs, and witty ditties evoke the soundtrack of such mythic fictions as Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings.
Kongero formed in 2005 and has since become one of Sweden’s leading vocal groups—playing at major folk music festivals, in historic concert halls and churches, and releasing two albums. Like nothing you’ve heard before, the voices of these maidens are so pure and haunting, they might just make you believe in unicorns!
Each year since 2001, Neruda Productions has summoned up all its non-profit powers to present the best world music and Latin performances in the Region. Whether you are excited by our cabarets, enamored by our concerts or energized by our fabulous free festivals, you can support Neruda’s programming by joining us for light tapas, a glass of sangria and the hauntingly beautiful sounds of folk’appella group Kongero.
