The Real Group

Event Navigation

The Real Group is a Swedish vocal group with five dedicated singers and musicians. The group is composed of Emma Nilsdotter, Lisa Östergren, Anders Edenroth, Morten Vinther, and Jānis Strazdinš. They have been touring for more than 30 years and continue to excite audiences all over the world. With a unique musical expression in a field between jazz, pop, and Northern European choral music, The Real Group is considered one of the leading forces in the world of vocal music.

The Real Group was formed in 1984 by five students at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm. The original members were eager to explore the artistic world of vocal music with an emphasis on jazz, pop, and folk music. The group quickly gained an international audience and has grown to become one of the cornerstones of modern a cappella. Today, the legacy of The Real Group is maintained and further developed by worldwide concert tours, recordings, educational mentoring, and published scores. The mentorship has evolved over the years and continuously seeks to integrate artistic aspirations with human rights, ecological awareness, global concern, and a feminist mindset. The organization is owned and managed by Margareta Bengtson, Anders Edenroth, Katarina Henryson, and Peder Karlsson.
