Back by popular demand, Canada’s multiple award winning string slingers SULTANS OF STRING bring their genre hopping musical passport to Delray audiences.
For the past 10 years, 3x JUNO Award nominees and triple Canadian Folk Music Award winners Sultans of String have thrilled audiences with their global sonic tapestry of Gypsy-jazz, Spanish Flamenco, Celtic, Arabic folk, and Cuban rhythms, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity.
They’ve been celebrating this milestone decade of music-making with a digital and vinyl release, aptly titled ’10’ (featuring re-mastered cuts from their 6-CD catalogue).
Folk Radio UK recently described their music as “an enthralling, adventurous celebration of the power music has to transcend geographical and cultural boundaries, and Sultans of String wield that power with grace, eloquence and spirit.” Indeed ’10’, is more than a global sonic tapestry. It is a musical promise that embraces differences while finding common ground across culture, land, and time. While the album treks across all kinds of musical terrain, the fertile soil beneath each track is fed by hope unhindered and freedom found.
At the core of the band’s sound is Queen’s Diamond Jubilee recipient Chris McKhool’s fiery fiddle, melded seamlessly with founding guitarist Kevin Laliberté’s (Jesse Cook) rumba rhythm. Together their musical synergy create Sultans of String’s signature sound – the intimate and playful relationship between violin and guitar. Added to this rich foundation for the show is in-the-pocket bass master Drew Birston (Chantal Kreviazuk).Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
