The roots of this instrumental acoustic project lie in Barcelona, where the two guitarists Mario Chehade (aka Rio Che) and Jakob Lackner (aka El Coba) used to perform as street musicians. In 2006 the violinist Herwig Schaffner (aka Herwigos) joined the duo and the trio Cobario was born. The music of the threesome is stylistically very diverse and unites influences from many different sound traditions. Thus, the songs of Cobario – who have in the meantime performed concerts all over Europe – include a strong orientation towards Spanish folklore, but also have many Irish, Oriental and Slavic influences. Garnished with elements of classical music, the compositions of this trio have a very unique lyrical vibe that invites listeners to lean back and let the music carry them away.
