Cardigans singer to rock vote with election variety show
Published måndag 22 januari kl 08.45

Rehearsals have started for The Winner Takes All, a sort of political variety show that is part of Cardigans singer Nina Persson's new Medborgarbandet, or Citizen's Band, project. So what's it all about?

"The absolute best hope is that somebody leaves here and they feel like 'I need to do something and I can do something," says director Hugo Hansén. "And I think the show has the potential to end like that, and to sow some seeds, and I think that's important."

When she was living in New York, Persson was part of the Citizen's Band, which tried to raise political awareness in the run-up to the 2008 presidential election.

Now back in Malmö, she decided to do something similar in Sweden over a coffee with her friend, band promoter Gudrun Hauksdottir.

"If you just look at the World, there's a screaming need for that," Hauksdottir says. "The world is not in a place where we want it to go further."'

Have a listen to hear how cast members Angelica Radvolt, a Swede with a Persian background, Kanyi Mavi, a rapper from South Africa, and Acrobat Ashtar Muallem, hope to get people inspired to go out and vote.
