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.”

Back home after two lovely concerts in Falun (SE)! This is the town where we met 10 years ago, when we were studying music here. On the second day we visited our old school and played a concert for the students there. It was a very nice and heart-warming experience to meet the lovely students there and also some of our old teachers.This trip surely gave us some nostalgia and we feel grateful for what we have experienced together with our duo since that day when we played together for the first time. The local newspaper also made an interview with us, we appreciate that a lot! ❤✨🙏 ... See MoreSee Less

Dear friends and listeners! We are so happy to share our new live session video, and our new song ”Amnesty” with you! We hope you will enjoy our new music and please feel free to let us know what you think and feel about it. �✨... Sometimes in life we are in need of amnesty. A safe space where we can show others and ourselves the truth. To get a new start, and a possibility to do things differently in the future. Because it is never too late to change, and we can get and give each other amnesty.Music composed and performed by: SymbioFilmed by: Anton Näslund & Erika Soldh AhlströmEditing, mixing and mastering by: LarsEmil Öjeberget#symbio #amnesty ...
