Edin Karamazov is a renowned Bosnian musician-lutenist (born in 1965 in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina). He studied lute with Hopkinson Smith at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.
He worked with such ensembles as Hesperion, L'Arpeggiata, Hilliard Ensemble, Mala Punica, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and singers Andreas Scholl, Maria Cristina Kiehr, Arianna Savall, and Sting. Karamazov's solo archlute recording features Benjamin Britten's "Nocturnal" and J.S.Bach's Partita in d-minor (orig. for violin).
Recent collaborations with Sting (in the field of 16th century music) resulted in the album and film Songs from the Labyrinth, devoted to the lute-songs of John Dowland.
Karamazov's 2008 solo CD project on DECCA "The Lute is a Song" includes guest appearances of Sting, Renée Fleming and Macedonian singer and songwriter Kaliopi.
