Sultans of String-CD Release with special guest ANWAR KHURSHID, October 1
Canada’s high octane musical border hoppers, Sultans of String, make their highly anticipated return to Nineteen On The Park!
This is a CD Release w/ special guest Anwar Khurshid–
2015 JUNO Award nominees and 2x CFMA winners Sultans of String thrill their audiences with their global sound-tapestry of Spanish Flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, Gypsy-jazz, East Coast fiddling, and South Asian styles, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar and soulful sitar, while the rhythm section lays down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound.
“You get the feeling this is Strunz & Farah or Willie & Lobo or Gypsy Kings taken to the next level of the game, sometimes all at once… a sure bet to notch a Juno and any other award winning hardware to come its way.“
Midwest Record, Chicago
“This is the sort of band and music that would rip up any stage.”
Maverick Magazine, UK
The event takes place on October 1 at Nineteen on the Park, 8 pm.
