Sultans of String (from the album Christmas Caravan available on CEN)
Seasonal traditions have been carried over land and water when millions of refugees walk the same steps that trace back to the origins of December celebrations. The music of Sultans of String erase borderlines as they create a world where sounds of east travel like the traditions on their holiday release, Christmas Caravan. Sultans of String blend sand and snow in “Turkish Greensleeves”, decorate the air with gypsy melodies in the classics of the season in “A Django Christmas”, and sleighride from dusk to dawn in “Jingle Bells/Auyuittuq Sunrise”. Acoustic strings trim “The Christmas Song” with Nikki
Yanofsky on vocals as Christmas Caravan makes a rhythmic stop in African tradition with “Sing for Kwanzaa” and packs the sled for a multi-cultural romp in “Himalayan Sleigh Ride”.
