EVENT LOCATION: Thacher Hall, Yarmouth Port
"The harmonies are effortlessly natural, the voices all gorgeously clear, and the arrangements deliciously complex.” – Singout Magazine
“There are a capella groups, and then there’s Kongero. The quartet of Swedish women create wonderfully crisp, pure music... On a mix of traditional and self-composed pieces, they shine with a crystalline brilliance.” – RootsWorld
Kongero is a highly esteemed, world touring Swedish Folk’appella group singing powerful, evocative, haunting music– and they'll be performing at Thacher Hall on Tuesday, December 12. This concert was curated in collaboration with Paul "DJ Pablo" Greenspan of Global Grooves radio on WOMR, as part of a new Global Roots Music Series.
Pushing the boundaries in trad/folk/world music as well as in a cappella and chamber music, a concert with Kongero will take the listener on an all-embracing Scandinavian music experience.
Each member of Kongero share the same passion, the same goal: to bring the traditional Nordic vocal music to a larger audience, take it from the past into the present, and to explore all possibilities of the human voice. They also feel it’s important to share their passion with others through workshops and master classes as well as performances– and feel that to share is to gain something new, and by sharing their traditions, knowledges, in return they receive abundant positive energy, love, and powerful musical experiences.
Ticket Price: $20*-$25* // Members: $18-$20
*Note that ticket prices may increase day-of-show
