Music - Meetings - Magic
Since the previous record (1998) Vocal Ensemble Amanda from Göteborg has produced four new shows - Fukt, Himligheter, Tidvill and Larm. Add to that the hugely successful "Ramelodia Lusticana" with Povel Ramel and The Göteborg Symphony Orchestra.
Amanda has also toured extensively throughout Sweden and has travelled to Germany, France Spain, Tenerife, Rio de Janeiro and more. With its unique stage presence and vocal expression, Amanda is continuously broadening its audience and the ensemble is always received with great enthusiasm.
Amanda is a proper mishmash of rock singers, folk musicians, pop artists, classically trained musicians and actors. That is why Amanda can offer something completely different by way of entertainment. This is not a conventional choir, not an orchestra, not a dance company, not a theatre troupe - this is Amanda!
The album Tres includes a collection of songs from the shows Tidvill och Larm. Here you will find Celtic folk music, Swedish pop, voodoo beat, hallings, salsa and opera. Some are original compositions, some are borrowed, but very characteristically arranged!
