Sultans of String
New York Times feature pick Sultans of String creates “Energetic and exciting music from a band with talent to burn!” (UK’s Maverick Magazine). Thrilling their audiences with their genre-hopping passport of flamenco, Celtic reels, roots and Cuban rhythms, the group celebrates musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with a rumba-flamenco guitar while the bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound. At the same time, world rhythms excite audiences to their feet with the irresistible need to dance.
Equally at home in a concert hall, jazz club or festival setting, the Sultans have gigged at the legendary club Birdland NYC, the renowned UK’s Celtic Connections Festival, and the San Jose Jazz Festival. They have performed with symphonies across North America and played live on BBC TV, Irish National Radio, World Cafe and SiriusXM in Washington. They just released their feature-length film Refuge – Visual Album at a dozen film festivals worldwide.
