Sultans of String is a multi-award-winning, 3x Juno-nominated and Billboard charting band that creates “energetic and exciting music from a band with talent to burn!” (Maverick, UK). For more than a decade, Sultans of String have thrilled audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, Flamenco, Django-jazz, Arabic, Cuban and South Asian rhythms. The group celebrates musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity, with world rhythms that excite audiences to their feet!
Sultans of String’s Refuge / Sanctuary concert highlights the positive contributions of refugees and new immigrants to Canada. The show is a collaboration with special guests who are newcomers to this land, Indigenous artists, as well as global talents who have been ambassadors for peace. Sultans of String hope the music will provide a model for peace that will inspire all audiences.
