NEW VIDEO: Indigenous Collaborations Album in the works!

Hello! And I hope you have been having a great summer!

Sultans of String are now embarking on the most ambitious and essential project of our career. We’re recording our ninth album, a beautiful collection of collaborations with First Nations, Metis, and Inuit artists across Turtle Island/Canada. And we would love your support – with your help we can make this recording a reality!

Why is this album so important? Please watch this short video to find out!

We want to make a difference in the world, with the music we play.

We’re making this album in the spirit of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 calls to action, and final report that asks for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to work together as an opportunity to show a path forward.

We know that as a society we can’t move ahead without acknowledging and reflecting on the past. Before reconciliation can occur, the full truth of the Indigenous experience in this country needs to be told, so we’ve been calling on Indigenous artists to share with us their stories, their experience, and their lives, so we settler Canadians can continue our learning about the history of residential schools, of cultural genocide, and of intergenerational impacts of colonization.

“When you’re collaborating with mainstream music, it shows that we can work together to bring out the very best in who we are as human beings. It shows that we can work together and we can bring out something very beautiful”
– Steve Wood – Northern Cree drummer and singer
