[Nelson/Oswego NY] Serving up a spicy stew of Gypsy Jazz, Spanish Flamenco, Global Roots, and Cuban rhythms, raucous roots string wizards and JUNO (Canada’s Grammy) nominees, Sultans of String, make a stop at The Nelson Odeon (Nov 4) and Oswego Music Hall (Nov 5) on their debut US Tour!
Seamlessly traversing diverse themes of heart, place and tradition, fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar while a funk bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound.
Since their formation only 4 years ago, Sultans of String have been riding a wave of success, from their debut CD, "Luna", and 2nd offering, "Yalla Yalla", both hitting # 1 on world/international music charts in Canada, to their triple Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, winning Instrumental Group of the Year.
In the past year alone, they've acquired a JUNO nomination, representation from acclaimed promoter David Wilkes (Emmylou Harris, Bela Fleck, Jesse Cook), and booking representation in the US, UK and Australia. They also garnered a 2010 CMW Indies nomination, took home 1st place in the International Songwriting Competition (out of 15,000 entries) and placed as finalists for two 2011 International Independent Music Awards. To boot, they just released their new CD, MOVE, which they’ll be showcasing on the tour... exciting times for the band!
“Canada’s ambassadors of musical diversity” include 6-string violinist Chris McKhool (Pavlo), guitar czar Kevin Laliberté (Jesse Cook, guested on tour with The Chieftains), bass master Drew Birston (Chantal Kreviazuk), and the jaw dropping talent of Cuban percussionist Chendy Leon (Alex Cuba, Parachute Club)!
“North America is a real meeting places of styles and musical influences from around the world” says bandleader/ fiddler McKhool. “At the same time, as a band we try to tell uniquely North American stories, putting forth our vision of the world as one family.”
