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)

“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.”

Here is a little musical memory from one of our unplugged late night gig at a hotel room in New Orleans during the Folk Alliance International, January 2020. The name of the song is Phoresy.

Filmed by on of our new good friends from that trip, thanks a lot Don Sheldon! ✨🙂

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!

Our lovely friends from Studio Trad in Belgium will broadcast a full live concert session with Symbio! The concert was recorded on the 3.d of March 2019 and everything is pure live, sound and picture!

In these times when almost every concert is cancelled, the initiative to stream recorded live concert which haven´t been broadcasted yet is really nice! 👏😘

"You'll be sitting in the audience, and hear the original recording directly streamed to your home. Very welcome to tune in next Sunday!"

And yes.. We too are excited since we did not see the recording of the concert ourselves! But we remember we had a nice evening! 🥰✨
