    Hailed as “Canada’s Ambassadors of musical diversity,” the Sultans of String thrill audiences with their genre-hopping celebration of global rhythms.

    Violinist Chris McKhool grew up in a Lebanese-Egyptian home bursting with musical energy and diversity. When he first heard Kevin Laliberté play rumba rhythms on flamenco guitar, he knew he found a kindred musical spirit. Combining their love of complex global traditions and melodies, the Sultans of String was formed. Since the two began playing together, the group has expanded to include new members, instruments, and musical elements from around the world: A dash of Spanish flamenco here, or a bit of French Manouche Gypsy-jazz there, and a sprinkle of Arabic, Celtic or Cuban rhythms, for good measure. This award-winning group celebrates musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity.
