Sultans of String
The long-awaited return of another favorite, we are so glad the Sultans could squeeze us into their crazy schedule. 2010 JUNO Award nominees and “Canada’s ambassadors of musical diversity” Sultans of String 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.
“Virtuoso playing…. An exuberant and infectious sound… Powerful and moving…The Sultans are simply an awesome musical group!” - Mike Hill, Artistic Director, Mariposa Folk Festival
“The playing is top notch and every (song) is a musical discovery!” - Errol Nazareth, Toronto Sun
