Two-time JUNO Award Nominees and Canadian Folk Music Awards Winners, Sultans of String have been called “the very epitome of world music: no boundaries, no rules”. They have played on BBC TV, Irish National Radio and SiriusXM in Washington. From CBC’s Canada Live, to the Birdland Jazz Club in NYC, to Roy Thompson Hall with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, they’ve done it all!

Individually, they’ve performed with internationally acclaimed artists such as Jesse Cook, Pavlo, The Chieftains and Chantal Kreviazuk. Together, they combine Spanish flamenco, Arabic folk, East Coast Celtic, Cuban rhythms and Gypsy-jazz. Last year, they entertained a sold-out audience at Koerner Hall, accompanied by a full symphony orchestra.

“They are players without borders… world music that transcends place and time with a heavy dose of playfulness added in.”
