Music workshop : swedish songs with Kongero

Saturday 10:30 pm – Espace LEJEUNE


Welcome to a delightful and fun Swedish Folk’appella singing experience. In our workshops we teach songs and tunes in 2- to 5-part harmony – all by ear. We work and experiment with genre specific sounds, grooves, articulation, improvisation, and ornaments. You will get tips and feed-back on vocal technique, intonation, tools for improving your singing together, basic arranging ideas, and we always have a lovely and fun time singing. The workshop will be held in English but we will sing in Swedish. The perfect crash course in to Swedish traditional singing tradition.

The four Kongero singers are all skilled and experienced workshop leaders. Two of us are educated vocal teachers and hold university degrees in singing and vocal technique. We have released two Song Books with the songs and arrangements we teach.

Acoustic nap with Christian Pacher (France)

Saturday 12:30 am – Espace LEJEUNE


A concert that can be listened to lying down or seated, in the middle of the room, in a musical, soft and cosy atmosphere. No intense lights, microphones or applause that could break this charming moment.

Don’t hesitate to bring your own pillow or teddy bear to take a little nap at ease.
