"Anders Hagberg creates a unique world of sound, filled with beautiful, lyrical melodies and suggestive rhythms…

Music that knows no boundaries, independent of time and space…it moves from quiet wonder to expressive, explosive exuberance.
With a singular color and fragrance. Inventive and playful throughout…
Anders Hagberg has truly made music for the entire world.” Opulens, 5/5.
