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. Throughout, acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound.
Their new release, Subcontinental Drift, serves up a blend of ragas, reels and rumbas with sitar master Anwar Khurshid (featured in the Oscar-winning Life of Pi, The Love Guru).
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.
