Sultans of String – ‘Love it Live’ performance
Apr 6, 2017 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm| $3 - $60
The Sultans of String is a Toronto-based, multi-award-winning quintet which has taken the world by storm. Their exciting music has deservedly earned a place in the world music genre. They magically fuse together Celtic reels, flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic, Cuban and South Asian rhythms. Impossible, you say? This band does it seemingly effortlessly with layer upon layer of sounds combined to make you absolutely want to dance to the beat. Everywhere they go, they play to standing audiences and rave reviews!
In the 8 years that the Sultans of String have been performing, they have hit the #1 spot across Canada on Top Ten national radio charts and have received at least 30 awards, including 2 JUNO nominations, 1st place out of 15,000 entries in the International Songwriting Competition, 2014 SIRIUSXM Independent Music Award winner, 2 Canadian Folk Music awards and many others. They have also performed with special guest artists such as Paddy Moloney and the Chieftains, David Bromberg, Alex Cuba and more.
They have played to a sold-out audience at Koerner Hall (the Toronto equivalent of Carnegie Hall) and have performed with symphony orchestras from Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Stratford Ontario and Niagara.
“They are players without borders… world music that transcends place and time with a heavy dose of playfulness added in.” – The Vancouver Province.
