Loved it.”-- Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul & Mary)"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."-- International Celtic Connections Festival, UK“Transports listeners from one side of the globe to the other within one track. Truly the definition of music without borders. …musical magic. - Rating: Bad-Ass”-- That Music Mag3x JUNO (Canada’s Grammy) nominees and 3x Canadian Folk Music Award winning Sultans of String are “energetic and exciting with talent to burn!” (Maverick Magazine UK). Thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic, and Cuban rhythms, Sultans of String celebrate musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar that lay down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and soundscapes that seem impossible to be coming from just 2 people.Celebrating a milestone 10 years together, Sultans of String have landed The New York Times, Billboard’s world music charts, hit #1 across Canada on Top 10 national radio charts, and have received multiple awards and accolades, including 1st place in the ISC (out of 15,000 entries), a SiriusXM Award, plus special guest recordings and performances with such luminaries as Grammy winners Paddy Moloney and The Chieftains, Richard Bona, Sweet Honey in the Rock, and Alex Cuba.Bandleader/violinist Chris McKhool (Jesse Cook, Pavlo), a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal recipient, was raised in a Lebanese-Egyptian household just bursting with music and diversity. Growing up, he was fed a steady diet of delicious musicality alongside Middle Eastern cuisine and violin lessons. When he first heard founding guitarist Kevin Laliberté’s (Jesse Cook) rumba rhythm, their musical synergy created Sultans of String’s signature sound – the intimate and playful relationship between violin and guitar.Sultans of String have been criss-crossing North America for the last several years at many taste-making forums such as NYC’s legendary Birdland and the Lincoln Center, Boston’s Scullers and California’s hip music scene. They recently sold out Koerner Hall (Toronto’s Carnegie Hall), and performed with Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Stratford, Ontario and Niagara Symphony Orchestras, as well with Kingsfield POPS in Maine and Maryland’s Annapolis Symphony. Sultans of String were filmed by MPBN’s Maine Arts! in a feature concert, and have performed live on BBC TV, BBC Radio, Irish National Radio, and the internationally syndicated shows WoodSongs, World Cafe, and on SiriusXM in Washington.
