SULTANS OF STRING featuring sitar master ANWAR KHURSHID

2015 JUNO Award Nominees and 2012 Canadian Folk Music Award winners SULTANS OF STRING, are releasing their fifth CD... Subcontinental Drift... with sitar virtuoso ANWAR KHURSHID,

Sultans of String thrill their audiences with their global sonic tapestry of Spanish Flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, and 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.



In this special presentation Sultans of String meet the electricity of sitar master Anwar Khurshid in an innovative collaboration that transcends categorization.
Anwar's sitar playing has been featured in Oscar-winning film Life of Pi and The Love Guru. Originally from Pakistan, Anwar now makes Canada his home, regularly collaborating with musicians from other genres including Blues, Jazz, African, Middle Eastern, and Asian music, and has performed across Europe, USA and Asia.

Music has the ability to bring together people and cultures in a way that emulates what we love to see in the world, creating a collaboration that breaks down the barriers that divide us, and helping us to see our common humanity, and providing a model for peace.
