Freda' (Swedish for Friday) is a pop group from Gnosjö in Sweden. It was first active from 1983–1993. Singer and songwriter Uno Svenningsson had a solo career before the band was re-united in 2009. The group is named for "Friday" (the day of the week) because they won a rock band competition on a Friday. The group broke through in 1986 with the song "Vindarna". They received a Grammis award in 1988[1] and again in 1990.
