SULTANS OF STRING
2015 JUNO nominees and SiriusXM winners Sultans of String create “Energetic and exciting music from a band with talent to burn!” (Maverick Magazine, UK). Thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic, Cuban, and South Asian rhythms, fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar, while bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. The Sultans, together with sitar master Anwar Khurshid (featured in the Oscar winning Life of Pi and The Love Guru), serve up a blend of ragas, reels and rumbas.
Since forming 8 years ago, Sultans of String have hit #1 across Canada on Top 10 national radio charts, and received multiple awards and accolades, including 2 JUNO nominations, 1st place in the ISC (out of 15,000 entries), 2 Canadian Folk Music Awards, plus invitations to perform and record with such luminaries as The Chieftains, David Bromberg, and Alex Cuba.
