Sultans of String World Music Peace Concert
3x JUNO (Canada’s Grammy) nominees & SiriusXM Award winners SULTANS OF STRING are sure to raise the rafters with their new, genre-hopping CD, Subcontinental Drift, at BANYAN BOWL, Saturday, February 24, 2018
An “energetic and exciting band with talent to burn!” (Maverick Magazine UK), Sultans of String thrill audiences with their musical passport of Celtic reels, Flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic, and Cuban rhythms. Fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar, while funky bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound. They are touring non-stop in support of Subcontinental Drift, serving up messages of hope and cultural harmony alongside a feast of ragas, reels ‘n’ rumbas. The Sultans will forgo 100% of the proceeds for humanitarian relief for Syrian children and their families displaced from the 7-year war in Syria–the biggest humanitarian crisis the world has witnessed since the second world war.
