JUNO Award nominees and “Canada’s ambassadors of musical diversity” Sultans of String thrill their audiences with their global sonic tapestry of Spanish Flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, and French Manouche Gypsy-jazz, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar while a funk bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound, while world rhythms excite audiences to their feet with the irresistible need to dance.

Since their formation 5 years ago, Sultans of string have been riding a wave of success, hitting #1 on world/international music charts in Canada, and a triple Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, winning Instrumental Group of the Year. They also took home 1st place in the international Songwriting Competition out of 15,000 entries! The band has been recorded live for broadcast by BBC Television, SiriusXM in Washington DC, CTV's CanadaAM, CBC's Canada Live, and has topped campus/community radio charts in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Belarus, Colombia, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Spain, The Netherlands, U.S. and UK.

A canadian string super-group, Sultans of String includes 6-string violinist and 2x JUNO Award nominee Chris McKhool -who has guest starred with Jesse Cook and Pavlo. McKhool's unbrided passion for exploring rhythms and melodies has led him to the far corners of the world, and he incorporates instruments and styles from far and wide into music.

Sultans of String seem to be hoovering up Canadian awards and nominations like a Dyson on speed — a joyful melting pot of jazz, flamenco, folk, and indeed anything else that takes their fancy.. this is the sort of band and music that would rip up any festival in the country.

Sultans of String are one of Canada’s hottest new musical exports, dynamically embodying their homeland’s values of tolerance and respect for diverse cultures. … they weave a gorgeously-hued tapestry of Folk, Spanish, Arabic, Latin, French and gypsy strands.
