Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland

25th anniversary celebration at Folk!

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland, and GIBCA is hosting the jubilee party at Folkbaren! The artists Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Leif Elggren, together with Joakim Nordwall, will perform various versions of the celebrated national anthem of the two kingdoms. The party also marks the release of artist Joakim Forsgren’s 7-inch single, Resurrection of Carolus Rex, published by Firework Edition Records. The single was produced for the exhibition Gravöppning (The Opening of the Grave) with Leif Elggren, Joakim Forsgren and Jan Håfström in 2015, but this will be the official release night.
 
The violinist Jessica Moss, the visual artist James Hoff from New York, and Eli Keszler, American percussionist, composer and artist, will also perform.
