The Real Group is a groundbreaking vocal group based in Sweden.
With the voice as their sole instrument they have created a unique musical expression in the field between jazz, pop and Nordic European choir music. The group has been touring the world for more than 28 years.
The combination of perfection and personal touch along with original songs have made them accessible to music enthusiasts in general as well as to the more demanding ear. In 1989 the group graduated from The Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm with the highest degree and since then they have often been asked to perform at prestigious official events along with their regular concerts. Such an event was the Swedish queen’s birthday when they performed the Abba classic ”Dancing Queen” together with the former Abba member Anni-Frid Lyngstad. The group also sang at the opening of the Fifa World Cup in South Korea and Japan. Their wide repertoire has made it possible for the group to collaborate with symphony orchestras, jazz groups, popbands and artists such as Barbara Hendricks, Toots Thielemans and Sir George Martin.
