Release of new album spring 2022

Symbio is regarded as one of the most interesting new bands from the Swedish Folk & World music scene. With their strong stage presence and a magical interplay of hurdy-gurdy and accordion, the duo surprises their audience and takes them on a moving musical journey. 

Symbio has been described as musical storytelling where folk, minimalistic art music and electronic pop meets and becomes a cinematic experience for the listener. During concerts the duo perform with both seriousness and joy, telling personal and vivid stories about their songs. 

Through the last years Symbio have been touring extensively in Scandinavia and Europe. Their second album Rising (2018) was 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 was chosen as official showcase artist at the Folk Alliance International USA 2020.
