WALKING THROUGH THE FIRE
This performance brings the magic of collaboration to the stage, with award-winning First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists from across Turtle Island / Canada joined by BILLBOARD charting 3x JUNO Award nominees and 3x CFMA winners Sultans of String!
From Métis fiddling to an East Coast Kitchen Party, from Rumba to Rock, to the drumming of the Pacific Northwest, experience the beauty and diversity of musicians onstage with Alyssa Delbaere-Sawchuk of the Métis Fiddler Quartet, Ojibwe/Finnish Singer-Songwriter Marc Merilaeinen (Nadjiwan), and Coast Tsm’syen Elder and Singer-Songwriter Shannon Thunderbird, as well as virtual guests on the big screen, including Dr. Duke Redbird, the Northern Cree Pow Wow group, and more!
The songs beautifully reveal the depths of contemporary Indigenous experience and music, expressed in the spirit of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action, and Final Report that asks that Indigenous and non-Indigenous people work together as an opportunity to show a path forward.
SULTANS OF STRING BIO:
New York Times feature pick Sultans of String creates “Energetic and exciting music from a band with talent to burn!” (UK’s Maverick Magazine). Thrilling their audiences with their genre-hopping passport of flamenco, Celtic reels, roots and Cuban rhythms, the group celebrates musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar, while bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound, while world rhythms excite audiences to their feet with the irresistible need to dance.
Equally at home in a concert hall, jazz club or festival setting, the Sultans have gigged at the legendary club Birdland NYC, the renowned U.K.'s Celtic Connections Festival, and the San Jose Jazz Festival. They have performed with symphonies across North America, and played live on BBC TV, Irish National Radio, World Cafe and SiriusXM in Washington. They just released their feature length film "Refuge - Visual Album" at a dozen film festivals worldwide.
