As winter crests and the mercury falls, everyone from your taxi driver to the music supervisor at the mall starts running timeless hits like "Jingle Bells" and "Silent Night." But for their Christmas Caravan show and album (which hit Billboard’s World Music Charts and the New York Times Hits List), Canada’s string wizards Sultans of String celebrate the holiday spirit with an adventurous musical trip around the world, featuring exuberant originals, world-music inspired classics, and seasonal favourites to warm your heart on a cold winter’s night.
From fiery fiddle tunes to a Caribbean sleigh ride, this surprising and delightful holiday fiesta heats up when Sultans of String bring their signature sound to well known gems such as Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, a Turkish twist on Greensleeves, Silent Night, as well as a Django-jazz inspired Christmas medley, and a Rumba-Flamenca fuelled Jingle Bells.
This is over ZOOM, which is awesome because it is interactive, and we will be able to see and hear you, and you can see and hear us, and you can all see each other as well! It is a real show!
So pour yourself a quarantini, and get ready to enjoy the music!
Link becomes live at 6:45 pm to get settled and chat with our friends. And make sure you have speakers plugged in if you have them!
Show will last about an hour, including a talk back portion, so bring your burning questions, as we will be opening up the floor for anyone who has always wanted to ask any of the artists about their inspiration, or music, or whatever strikes your fancy.
We have kept the ticket price low with a minium $10 donation for the show, as many of our friends and fans are out of work right now. Please contribute what you can to support the arts through these strange times!
$1 from each ticket sold is being donated to our UN Refugee Agency fundraiser: https://amplify.e-activist.com/14441/p2p/90279/sultansofstring
Thanks and look forward to seeing you all soon!
