About this Item


  • Homegrown: Kongero, Swedish Folk'appella


  • Kongero is a Swedish vocal group, consisting of four women who sing folksongs: Lotta Andersson, Emma Björling, Sofia Hultqvist Kott, and Anna Wikénius. Kongero was formed in 2005 when the original members met at a Nordic folk music conference. There they started singing together and found that their voices and harmonies blended, complementing each other perfectly. Since 2005, they have performed their polyphonic a cappella folk music (which they have dubbed Folk'appella) all over Europe, Asia, and the Americas, singing in concerts and leading workshops in traditional Swedish vocal music and vocal harmonies.
