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.

Sultans of String had their triumphant live orchestra debut under the direction of Maestro John Morris Russell, Conductor of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra. Stunningly beautiful arrangements were created by Rebecca Pellett, an illustrious composer who has arranged for IMAX and Hollywood film productions.

This recording, winner of the 2014 SiriusXM Indie Awards for World Music Group of the Year, features Sultans of String accompanied by a full Symphony Orchestra, serving up their signature genre-bending, spicy stew of Spanish Flamenco, French Manouche Gypsy Jazz, Middle Eastern Folk, and Cuban rhythms. Special Guests include Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains, Singing superstars Dala, Oud master Bassam Bishara, and ukulele giant James Hill.
