Two time JUNO Award nominees including this years nomination for Instrumental Album of the Year, The Sultans of String are Canadas ambassadors of musical diversity. They thrill their audiences with their global sonic tapestry of Spanish Flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, and French Manouche Gypsy-jazz, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar while a funk bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound, while world rhythms excite audiences to their feet with the irresistible need to dance.
Sultans of String, who are celebrating the release of their 5th album, Subcontinental Drift, will perform with special guest, sitar master Anwar Khurshid who is featured on the album. Anwar’s music has been featured in Oscar-winning film Life of Pi as well as Kama Sutra besides performances in Europe, North America and Asia.
