Sasquatch Music Festival

Robyn, Live In Concert: Sasquatch 2011

Swedish pop artist Robyn kept audiences dancing through most of last year with a trio of records on her own Konichiwa record label. Released in rapid succession, the Body Talk series pulsated with cathartic anthems to move the masses and bittersweet lyrics intimate enough to break hearts. The diminutive platinum-blonde singer is a one-woman dance show on stage, exuding sexy confidence and demanding just as much from the crowd.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, Robyn performs here as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
