Karakoram is led by guitarist Andy Hagiioannu, who is also a composer for TV and other media. If you watch mainstream TV in Europe and the UK you'll most likely have heard his music there. Some reviews of Andy's work: 'I suspect that I will not hear as satisfying a collection of guitar music this year...' -- C.MICHAEL BAILEY, ALL ABOUT JAZZ, 24/6/07. '... has a capivating sound [that] builds on tradition but ventures into it's own territory.

Tunes [that] bask in the warmth of a lazy afternoon.' -- RANDY WALDEN, MUSIC-REVIEWER.COM, 07/07: 'Hagiioannu is also set apart by finger-picking, which he incorporates into the... trio format, and also on several lyrical unaccompanied pieces...' -- DAVID BERTRAND WILSON, WILSON AND ALROYD RECORD REVIEWS, 26/4/07:.
