About Sultans of String

Three-time JUNO Award Nominees and Canadian Folk Music Awards Winners, Sultans of String have been called “the very epitome of world music: no boundaries, no rules”. They have played on BBC TV, Irish National Radio and SiriusXM. From CBC’s Canada Live, to the Birdland Jazz Club in NYC, to Roy Thompson Hall with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, they’ve done it all!

“They are players without borders… world music that transcends place and time with a heavy dose of playfulness added in.”
