"Göran Månsson is a pioneer in using various kinds of flutes and pipes in Swedish folk music in unique ways. The experimental flute playing of Månsson is fascinating and his approach is unique and fresh, presenting a great openness for the Swedish folk music he plays." - Staffan Jonsson

Marque’s innovative and pioneering work in the UK’s cultural arts scene is well known and documented. With over 25-years in music and the arts, Marque has always focused on creating platforms for the harmony of ancient traditions with the future of electronic instruments and digital technology.
KULT-U-REAL is born from this cultural ethos and this re-launch event focuses primarily on the quality of the musical collaboration and concert performance aspect of the full KULT-U-REAL project - to highlight the future activities for the 2013 season of concerts, remix-club nights, youth workshops and master-classes designed to develop the individuality of young artists and Musicians here in Sweden - the concept at the heart of KULT-U-REAL/Stockholm.
The location of Stallet as the new home for KULT-U-REAL was a clear decision in order to focus on the quality of the process of the collaborating artists - from the first sound of the opening concert all the way to the final bass vibrations of the 2013 Concerts, Workshops & Remix-Club- Sessions.
