It was an exciting trip down to Stockholm with Luleå International Choir members to do a choir performance and workshop at Eric Ericson Skeppsholmen.
We traveled by night train on Thursday evening and arrived in Stockholm at 6:30am on the following day.
We went directly to Eric Ericson Skeppsholmen, the performance hall that used to be a church. Then we had breakfast at Skeppsholmens High School.

We did a workshop until about 12pm, with a morning tea break about half an hour.
After lunch we continued the workshop again. We invited all the students to sing with us.
We sang various songs together:
- ‘Wangol’ in Swedish and African
- ‘Slå rot’ in Swedish
- ‘Sverige’ in Swedish
- ‘Koro Koro’ in Eastern African
- ‘Tre blad’ in Swedish
- ‘Vi sålde våra hemman’ in Swedish
- ‘Ayibobo’ in African
- ‘Larenn Kongo’
- ‘Lamma Bada’ in Arabic
- ‘Panama M Tonbe’ in Haitian Creole
- ‘Abobo’ in Haitian Creole
- ‘Vägen i natten’ in Russian and Swedish
After that we had dinner at Wagamama, a Japanese restaurant in the city. The food is delicious. I especially like the duck ramen and the green tea that I ordered.
It was a great weekend with nice people and a lot of Swedish language training.
