Filled with ragas, reels and rumbas, Subcontinental Drift is Sultans of String’s fifth album, and features a special guest musician, sitar master Anwar Khurshid (famous for playing on Oscar winning film Life of Pi, and The Love Guru).

While we are known for spotlighting treasured special guests from around the world, this is our first offering where some of the songwriting was also done together.  “There is something really magical about joining world music rhythms that we often play, but with pop sensibilities and forms and lengths, and blending that with the music of the East”, says bandleader/fiddler Chris McKhool.
