This is the story of how The Real Group, a Swedish a cappella group of five, support each other to find their inner voice when singing, the inner place in themselves that connects with the audience. We follow The Real Group from rehearsals in Stockholm to their summer tour in Sweden and Japan with live performances of their most beloved songs.
The Real Group writes:
”Normally we work, rehearse, travel, sing concerts, meet business-partners and friends of the group without thinking too much about all the processes that are in play. Some of these processes might have to do with the fact, that we work in the cultural field and WANT to communicate, but some of the processes are probably also just human and can be recognized by anyone.
We met this “anyone” at a charity event in Stockholm last year and his name is Carl. Initially Carl didn’t know what he was looking for (at least that’s what he told us), but he started visiting us while we were working, to see if he could put his finger on the thing, that sparked his curiosity. Ideally that’s how we want to work in The Real Group, so it felt natural to have an extra curious person around while rehearsing, traveling and singing concerts. Carl spent the summer meeting us in different locations, and he even followed us on tour to Japan, which is probably where he found the key to the door he was looking for.”
