Hello Friends, today marks the launch of our Sultans of String Christmas Caravan TOUR that takes us across Canada and northeast USA. We are super excited about this project that landed us on the Billboard charts and a feature in the New York Times!
And all along the tour we are helping raise awareness and funds for UNHCR, providing shelter, food, water, medical care and other life-saving assistance to refugees around the world.
We will be joined by the spectacular singer Rebecca Campbell on all dates, and other guests along the road include Amanda Martinez, Donne Roberts, Ken Whiteley, Kellylee Evans, and Mary Fahl. Please see details below.
We invite all our Toronto area friends to join us at the gorgeous Flato Markham Theatre Dec 13- well worth the drive for the spectacular sound we always experience there.

And we have a new video for our Sing for Kwanzaa song with singing by Cameroon’s Richard Bona, and Toronto’s Waleed Abdulhamid! Yes, I know we are a month early for Kwanzaa, but I thought this could be a nice video for teachers to share with their students leading up to December 26. Also, the theme of coming together as a community to celebrate resonates very well with American Thanksgiving. We wish all our US friends a joyful weekend!
By the way, for those who appreciate World Music, check out the wonderful programming by our Small World Music friends, who have some shows coming up, including one by Waleed Nov. 24 and also yours truly performing a concert for families in Toronto on Dec. 9th.
