About Symbio

Johannes Geworkian Hellman on hurdy-gurdy and Lars Emil Öjeberget on accordion and kickbox - 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.

The duo was awarded as ”Best Newcomer of the Year” at the Swedish Folk & World Music awards in 2016, and received the”Scholarship for young music ensembles” from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in the same year. Since the release of their debut album ”Phoresy” (2016) they have been touring extensively in Sweden and 20 different European countries. Their second album ”Rising” was released in September 2018 and has been highly acclaimed by international critics. In 2019 the duo was chosen by the Swedish National radio to represent Sweden at the EBU Radio Folk Festival at Rudolstadt Festival, Germany. Symbio is chosen as official showcase artist at the Folk Alliance International USA 2020 – the world ́s largest gathering of folk & roots music industry. In summer 2022 the duo will release their third album.
