SYMBIO

SYMBIO

“Symbio stand out to the highest degree as one of the most distinctive groups in the environs of folk music in recent years”
– LIRA Music Magazine

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.

Johannes Geworkian-Hellman: Hurdy-Gurdy
&
LarsEmil Öjeberget: Accordion, Kickbox

The interaction of Johannes Geworkian Hellman and LarsEmil Öjeberget left nothing to be desired. You get the impression that the the two of them complement one another perfectly and simply had to find each other.

– Rolf Graff,
Mindener Tageblatt (DE)

“Symbio, sounds that celebrate life. Joy and sorrow, longing, melancholy: the audience was always emotionally close to Symbio, so that this remarkable Nordic sounds-cosmos turned into a particularly long-lasting experience – simply excellent.”

– Werner Lauterbach,
Westfälische Anzeiger (DE) 

The young Swedish duo Symbio is a true phenomenon on stage. Every show is an experience due to the musical telepathy between these musicians and their catching stories. From the first song the listener is lifted from their daily boring routine and is taken away to a new, more hopefull universe

– Elda Dorren,
De Doelen Concert Hall Rotterdam (NL)

“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)

Kära vänner och musikälskare! Våra vänner Barbro Grind och Peter Grind sänder idag en digital musikfesival där Symbio medverkar!

Denna fesival hålls i fysisk form varje år och Symbio är bara ett av många band och artister som har medverkat tidigare år. Syftet med festivalen är att människor ska få mötas och uppleva och njuta av musik och gemenskap. Alla artister spelar gratis och inträdet går till ett barnhem i Nepal. Barbro och Per har sedan flera år stöttat detta barnhem, samt även besökt barnen i Nepal själva. De har kontakt och jobbar nära en av de svenska initiativtagarna till barnhemmet och brinner för denna goda sak.

Passa på att ta del av denna digitala musikfest och swisha gärna ett bidrag som går direkt till en mycket viktig och bra sak! Konserten kan ses via länken här! 😌❤️

Here is a little memory from one of our concerts in february 2020. This is the song Rising in a more acoustic version (only with a small amplification). We really enjoyed this concert at lovely Bror Hjorths Hus in Uppsala and right now we look forward for our next live concert.. 🙂

Thanks to the organizer for this little movie!

Ps. Please use headphones 🙂

Thanks a lot to all the people who watched our live stream concert from Stallet - Världens Musik yesterday evening! Nice to see that 300 people from different parts of the world have been watching the concert live at the same time! ✨

So nice to read all your heart-warming comments, and knowing that you all have been with us during the concert even if we could not see you. A big thanks to the crew at Stallet for having us and for organizing this concert!

Now we will continue the work with composing the music for our third album. It feels so fun and inspiring to work with our new songs and we look forward to record the album in October!
