From the Senior university programs:
Povel Ramel is a central figure in the Swedish 1900s culture. His songs reflect and comment on Swedish cultural history in a unique way. His music embraces almost the entire 1900s popular music history from ballad to rock and also houses art music features – all interpreted with a twinkle in his eye and jazzy timing. His lyrics offers both word games as well as philosophical reflections, draw from folk ballads as well as modern poets.

In this lecture series makes PhD Johanna Broman Åkesson a plunge in Ramels production. From different perspectives puts his work in relief to contemporary and historical genres and styles and other text and music composers such as Bach, Bellman, Alice Tegner, Irving Berlin, Evert Taube, Karl Gerhard, Ulf Peder Olrog, Fats Waller and many more. The lectures offer a variety of music and text examples from very different genres and from many centuries.
