Founded in 1978, STÄMBANDET is a group of accomplished singers from Scandinavia with a reputation for excellence both as an a cappella ensemble and a world music vocal group. Led by Berklee faculty member Allen LeVines, STÄMBANDET performs a wide range of a cappella folk traditions unique to Scandinavia, including trall—singers imitating fiddlers playing dance music—a practice that has been compared to scat singing.
