Team Jakob: the choir that rocked!

Filed under: Documentary, events — Tags: — norekefoto @ 12:49 pm

For those of you who do not watch Swedish television, Team Jakob is the hard-rocking local contribution to a televised choir competition.  Famous Swedish singers would lead choirs from their home towns, and every week a choir would get sent home.  Team Jakob made it to the semi-finals and took third place, but in the meanwhile they won the hearts of fans all over the country.  On Saturday they performed together with The Poodles (the heavy metal band for which their leader is the lead singer) in what was probable the biggest concert that’s ever happened around here.

The stage lighting was a bit uneven, so some areas were always dark, but the effect was very dramatic, and I had a great time photographing the concert.
