Multiple Award winning Sultans of String are “an energetic and exciting band with talent to burn!” - Maverick Magazine, UK
Thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, Flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic, Cuban, and South Asian rhythms, Sultans of String inspire with their fiery violin dances and kinetic guitar overlaid with an unstoppable bass and percussive grooves.
Acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create multiple layers and depth of sound. Their new release, Subcontinental Drift is a feast of ragas, reels and rumbas with collaborative contributions by sitar master Anwar Khurshid (featured in the Oscar winning Life of Pi). Incorporating the virtuosic talent of Anwar Khurshid adds to the Sultans of String's truly global and mesmerizing sound!
