Antonia Vai concert!

A concert of a talented young singer grown up in Sweden, but of Hungarian origins. 

“Writing songs and killing darlings. Any darlings, but my own.”

"Antonia Vai is a 25-year old singer/songwriter from Sweden, well-established on the music scene of Stockhom, but currently living in Budapest. The band consists of her and guitarist/songwriter/producer Felix Gröndahl, who joined Antonia permanently in 2012, after many years of playing and experimenting together. This duo is the solid base, but they constantly perform with different musicians and in different constellations, depending on what city in the world they happen to be in.

Antonia has been titled as a “bohemian soul diva”, but has clearly been influenced by folk. Focused on storytelling, shaped by rhythms and unique melodies, every song turns into a journey. She shifts between sadness and hopefulness. Combines metaphors and contradictions. One second she’s dynamically explosive, and the other she’s emotionally stripped down.

“Is there room for another Swedish singer in my musical affections? If her name is Antonia Vai, then the answer is yes.”

”A singer and songwriter of world class”.
