The history of ABBA
The ABBA group – formed by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad – became popular in the seventies, thanks to songs that have now entered the history of international music such as “Mamma mia”, “Dancing Queen” and “The Winner Takes It All”. They have sold over 385 million records. In 1982 ABBA disbanded and then returned to the scene in 2021 with the new album “Voyage” which immediately jumped to the top of the music charts.
