About The Band
Beginning as street musicians in Barcelona, Rio Che and El Coba formed the solely instrumental acoustic project "Cobario".
The exceptional violinist Herwigos joined the guitarists in 2007, creating an out of the ordinary trio that has fascinated increasing amounts of listeners ever since.
Since their beginning in Spain, Cobario is seen every year on the streets of the biggest and most beautiful cities as well as international street-art-festivals.
Their animating show is a specific type of street art. By sympathizing, laughing, astonishing and enjoying, it turns daily life into a special happening.
Therefore, beside concerts and performances of every kind, Cobario is playing mostly in summertime on the most prodigious and varied stage of the world: the street.

RioChe is a viennese musician who commited himself to the sounds of nylonstrings.
His compositions are mostly of tragical nature and an important ingredient in the bands music.
Herwig Schaffner, alias herwigos started to play the violine at an early age. When he was only 15 he got accepted into the Mozartaeum in Salzburg and started to study the violine and the piano at the famous university.
In addition to taking part in several projects concerning chamber music and orchestra, which even involved journeys to China, he also succeeded as a composer.
Thus, his second symphonic creation was premiered in December 2009 in the worldfamous Wiener Musikvereinssaal. Being part of the band Cobario he has now a new musical project which enables him to express his creativity.
Before exploring his passion for instrumental music, El Coba was playing for several years in many rock- and coverbands.
„Coba“ means in the language of the Maya “water swayed by the wind”. Energy and motion is also reflected in his live-performances and compositions. Chairs are often fearing for their lifes, if Cobarios “Mr. Rhythm” is expressing his joy of life with his music…
