Three time JUNO nominees and SiriusXM winners, Sultans of String are, “an energetic and exciting band with talent to burn!” -Maverick Magazine, UK.
Since forming 10 years ago, Sultans of String have hit #1 across Canada on national radio charts, and received multiple awards and accolades. Including Juno Award nominations, two Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and invitations to perform and record with such luminaries as David Bromberg, Livingston Taylor, and The Cheiftans.
Thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, Flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic, Cuban, and South Asian rhythms, Sultans of String have performed their fiery violin dances throughout North America and Europe. Acoustic strings meet with kinetic guitar, percussion and electronic wizardry to create layers of sound with unstoppable grooves.
The group’s latest Juno nominated release Subcontinental Drift serves up a feast of ragas, reels and rumbas with special guest and sitar master Anwar Khurshid (featured in the Oscar winning Life of Pi). The addition of the virtuosic talent of Anwar Khurshid takes their global and mesmerizing sound to the next level.
