Toronto’s Sultans of String in Urbana


The Toronto-based Sultans of String are, like so many world-music-inspired groups these days, stylistically rather hard to pin down. Spanish flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms and French Gypsy-jazz all show up in their music. It’s no wonder they’ve been called “Canada’s ambassadors of musical diversity.” This multi-award-winning band will play in Urbana Wednesday night, and they’ll play for us live on the Wednesday edition of “Live and Local.”
