“This is our YALLA YALLA! CD EDITION “, says bandleader Chris McKhool, “where we will play all the songs from our second JUNO Award nominated album, created in 2009! We will be joined on our song Al Vuelo with spectacular flamenco dancer Tamar Ilana!

This is over ZOOM, which is awesome because 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 clap and dance along with our music! Or sit back and relax… Whatever you like!

We have kept the ticket price very low as we know that a lot of our friends are out of work. If that is still a barrier for you then just shoot me an email at and I will provide you a comp, no questions asked, while tickets remain.”

Show will last about an hour, including a talk back portion, so bring your burning questions, as they will be opening up the floor for anyone who has always wanted to ask Chris (violin), or Kevin Laliberté (guitar), or Drew Birston (bass) about their inspiration, or music, or whatever strikes your fancy.

Please join us– it’s the perfect antidote to the Covid-19 blues!

Here are a few videos.

— Refuge (featuring Edmar Castaneda)

— Stomping at The Rex (as fun as the title sounds!)

— El Kahira

— Luna (Whale Song)

— I’m Free (feat. Waleed Abdulhamid)


Feedback from last ZOOM show:

“Music sounded amazing and the video production was super slick.”

“This was the best Zoom – online show I have seen. The setting and production values were excellent. It was obvious that time was taken to ensure us of a completely professional concert. Loved the music – hope there are more to come.”

“The show was amazing. Sound was top-notch, and I would know since I’ve been subjected to online classes for a while now. Overall great experience”

“It was great to have live music come right to our homes. The band played amazing music! The sound quality was wonderful. Hope to hear more live music from Sultans of String, soon.”

3x CFMA winners and 3x JUNO nominees Sultans of String create “energetic and exciting music from a band with talent to burn!” according to UK’s Maverick Magazine. Thrilling their audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, flamenco, gypsy-jazz, Arabic, Cuban and South Asian rhythms, the group celebrates musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar, while bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound, while world rhythms excite audiences to their feet with an irresistible need to dance.
