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

”I have a feeling that Johannes Geworkian Hellman and LarsEmil Öjeberget were destined to make music together, regardless of what instruments they might have played.”

Fiona Talkington – Songlines Magazine (UK), 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
