New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Sultans of String get set to take their genre-bending mix of songs to venues across Canada and US. Known for being culturally inclusive the bandcombines elements of Spanish flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, and French Manouche Gypsy-jazz into their eclectic sound. See full schedule below for shows for the whole family.

The Sultans of String are: Chris McKhool · Chendy Leon, Jr. · Eddie Paton · Drew Birston · Kevin Laliberté
"We are really thrilled to be able to share our music with people around the globe. And this Christmas Caravan tour is super exciting for us. It's fun to perform a fresh "world music" take on the seasonal music that people know and surprise our audiences with some new Christmas songs we wrote that they have never heard before. It is also a great experience to work with a singer on this tour. People know us more for our instrumental music, but working with these special guest vocalists bring a whole new fresh dimension to the music" - says McKhool
As we get closer to the holiday season expect to hear songs from the band's acclaimed album Christmas Caravan. Released in 2017 Christmas Caravan charted at #6 on Billboard's World Music Chart and delivers musical harmony with its diverse sound. Co-produced by bandleader and violinist Chris McKhool, along with John "Beetle" Bailey who has been nominated by the Canadian Folk Music Awards as producer of the year for the release (results Dec. 8).

"Sultans of String go deeper, bringing us tunes for Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and just general wintertime chilling" - Exclaim!
This season the band will be premiering four new videos for songs "Flight of the Angels", "Jesu Joy" featuring Mary Fahl (former lead singer of October Project,) "Turkish Greensleeves" featuring Gundem Yayli Grubu, and "The Christmas Song" featuring Nikki Yanofski.
"Sultans of String keeps imaginative imperatives in overdrive for the entirety of Christmas Caravan, a generous pitch for global unity through the music of Christmas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. These five musicians have jubilantly recharged the classics with arrangements that demand attention" - Downbeat

Sultans of String are 3x JUNO nominees/3x CFMA winning ambassadors of musical diversity. In 2017 they were recognized by the Folk Music Ontario Awards who honored Chris McKhool and Richard Bona with The Songs From the Heart Folk Music from Around the World Award for their song "Sing For Kwanzaa" from Christmas Caravan.
