Symbio draws the listener in with their intoxicating combination of vast audio landscapes and earthy grooves, driven by a deliciously unexpected combination of hurdy-gurdy and accordion.

The duo creates a playful dialogue full of joyful energy, subtleties and virtuosity, where two becomes more than the sum of its parts. This is musical storytelling at its finest, told by heartfelt storytellers through soaring melodies, rich soundscapes, irresistible grooves and finely tuned musical communication.

”Their music feels new and different. Yet first and foremost Symbio is something very much its own. I liked them from the first moment that I heard them”

Susanne Holmberg, Lira – Swedish music magazine, 2017


”When the two musicians in Symbio play I feel like a muggle. On stage: wizards, weaving their magic to create crazily swinging and up-to-date music on instruments not associated with modern-day popular music. I have never heard anything like it, whilst at the same time the duo’s music sounds strangely familiar.”

Catarina Nitz, Eskilstunakuriren, 2017


”Late one Friday night they make the entire audience at the Stockholm Folk Festival jubilate. That we hear two virtuoso musicians is obvious to all!”

Lars Lind, Lira – Swedish music magazine, 2015

Dear friends, we want to wish everyone of you a happy new year!

2017 has been a very busy and very enjoyable year for us. We have been playing a lot of concerts and been touring intensively in Sweden and also in Europe. During this time we have met a lot of nice people, played at some beautiful venues and created a lot of new music together. We now look forward to record our new album in the beginning of the next year. The album will be released later in 2018.

Thank you everyone who has contributed to our great experiences during this year. You have filled us with inspiration, motivation and love!

Warm greetings from Symbio!

This years concerts are now completed and we look forward to start next year 2018 by entering the studio, recording our 2nd album. (You can have a sneakpeak of the new material in the video)
We took the opporunity this weekend while playing at Pitefolk världsmusikfestival to sum up the year 2017.

Årets sista festival blev i Piteå på Pitefolk världsmusikfestival, och vi vill tacka alla som deltog och gjorde denna fina konsert och festival möjlig!
Vi ser mycket fram emot inleda nästa år med att gå in i studion och spela in vårt 2a album. (Ni kan även tjuvlyssna lite på det nya materialet i videon)
Vi valde att summera året 2017 genom en liten videodagbok från helgens gig.

All the best // LarsEmil & Johannes Symbio
