JUNO Award nominees Sultans of String thrill their audiences with their global sonic tapestry of Spanish Flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, and Gypsy-jazz, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity.
Sultans of String have been riding a wave of success, hitting #1 on world/jazz music charts in North America, and earning
eight Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, winning Instrumental and World Group of the Year.
They also took home the 2014 SiriusXM Award for World Group, and 1st place in the International Songwriting Competition out of 15,000 entries!
The band has been recorded live for broadcast on BBC TV, SiriusXM in Washington DC, CTV’s CanadaAM, CBC’s Canada Live,
and Kentucky’s WoodSongs, and has topped campus/community radio charts in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Colombia,
France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, The Netherlands, U.S. and U.K.
When violinist and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal recipient Chris McKhool first heard founding guitarist Kevin Laliberté’s Rumba rhythm, their musical synergy created Sultans of String's signature sound — the intimate and playful relationship between violin and guitar.
