The Swedish duo Symbio consists of hurdy-gurdy player Johannes Geworkian Hellman and accordionist LarsEmil Öjeberget. Together they create new music in the borderland of Folk, Pop and Art Music.
Symbio was named Best New Artist of the Year at the Swedish Folk & World Music Awards 2016 and also received the Scholarship for Ensembles from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music. Their debut album "Phoresy" was released in October 2016 and since then they have been touring extensively in Sweden and in 10 other European countries.
- Symbio is a project that is very close to our hearts. We are passionate about the music we make together. During the last year we have been creating new music together and our dream has been to make a new album which only consists of original compositions made by us. This has resulted in 8 original compositions that are now recorded. The name of the album will be "Rising" and we really feel that we have found music that speaks to our hearts and we look forward to share this music with the world, hoping that it will touch other people.
We are in the final stages of the making of this album and now the next step is to make photos, layout and to print the album. We are now asking for your support to get help covering the costs. If you want to support Symbio and our music - It is now possible to pre-order our new album through Kickstarter! The one who orders the album will get a signed copy to their door step in August before the Official release in September.
We would be very happy for your support! :)
