Vargas & Lagola

With more than eight billion streams, Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir are two of Sweden's most successful songwriters and producers. When they take this talent and channel it into their own artist project Vargas & Lagola, the result is, as expected, absolutely stunning.

Alternative pop, Americana, folk and psychedelia - everything fits in the permissive universe they carefully built. Dressed in extravagant clothes and with half their faces made up in white, Vargas & Lagola have created a platform where they make music for themselves - for everyone to enjoy.

The Grammy-winning duo released their acclaimed second album “Mount Alda” in 2021. Using only the instruments available in the studio, they managed to maintain the raw and organic feel of the songs, creating a body of work that bubbled with life. With the album and previous successes such as "Roads" and "Selfish" in the bag, the duo is now very current with a big Scandinavia tour this autumn.

The duo has been sparse with concerts during their long career and this will be Vargas & Lagola's first dedicated headliner tour. With previous sold-out concerts at Cirkus and a packed performance at Way Out West behind them, there is no doubt that the audience was longing. So now we welcome Vargas & Lagola to Skellefteå and Sara kulturhus!
