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)

“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.”
