The Real Group (Sweden) & Rajaton (Finland) Program: LEVELELEVEN



Ever since the two groups The Real Group and Rajaton first met in Canada more than ten years ago, a special energy seems to appear. Wherever they have met onstage, their combined talent and energy have raised the roof and left the audience breathless. This LEVELELEVEN combination of two of the world's leading a cappella groups is a must-see and must-hear for any vocal music lover! 

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 started in 1984 and has been touring the world for more than 30 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 original group members 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 queens 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.

The Real Group has made 20 cd´s in their own name. They have produced their own concert tours, TV programs and been artistic directors for several A Cappella Festivals around the world in Seoul, South Korea and Fossano, Italy just to mention a few.

In 2008 The Real Group initiated and hosted "The Real A Cappella Festival" and in 2012 "The Real Group Festival" with visitors from more than 20 countries. In 2015 they hosted Å cappella in the island of Åland.

2012 and 2013 the group toured as ambassadeurs for the charityprogram Star For Life in Sweden and South Africa.
The Real Group does collaborations with Symphony Orchestras and has an ongoing special project together with the Finnish vocal group Rajaton. A Scandinavian ”supergroup” called LEVELELEVEN.
 
The Finnish word Rajaton translates as "boundless" – a word that so accurately describes the way this six-voice a cappella ensemble approaches music. Regularly performing around a hundred concerts and workshops each year, Rajaton exposes their audiences to the kind of diversity of repertoire, singing style, and stage presentation that has made them a phenomenon on the world stage.

Performing at concert halls, churches, jazz and choral festivals, this distinct group of musicians approaches all styles of music with the same level of commitment and integrity, making it difficult to imagine an audience that they could not inspire, or a type of music they could not make their own. In their native Finland, Rajaton is a bona fide pop phenomenon, successfully bridging the gap that often exists between classical and mainstream convention.

Rajaton has released 15 different albums. In 2016, Rajaton celebrates 19 years of music-making with one double platinum, three platinum and eight gold records in Finland under their belt, as their worldwide record sales are drawing near 400.000 copies altogether.

Ever seeking new artistic challenges, the group has grown immeasurably through collaborations with other a cappella artists, including The King’s Singers and The Real Group, as well as productions with film directors and choreographers. But it is perhaps their deep passion for choral art, their generosity of spirit and their sheer enjoyment of singing that has won the hearts and acclaim of audiences and critics everywhere. Their energy – infectious; their ability to entertain and inspire – Rajaton!
The voice is boundless.
