Symbio: Swedish Hurdy-Gurdy & Accordion Duo
For the last stop of their North American tour, Symbio brings a magical interplay of hurdy-gurdy and accordion to Mayo Street Arts.
Symbio is regarded as one of the most prominent new bands from the Swedish Folk & World music scene. With strong stage presence, original compositions, and playful close interaction the duo surprises their audience with a moving and dreamy musical journey.
The duo performs with both seriousness and joy, telling personal and vivid stories about the music. The music is described as a “sound cosmos” of storytelling where folk, minimalistic art music, and electronic dance music meet to become a cinematic experience for the listener.
Elda Dorren, Program manager of Folk & World music at De Doelen concert hall in Rotterdam shares “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 hopeful universe.”
Saturday, October 8 | 7:30 PM (Doors 7:00 PM), 75-minutes with an intermission.
