“Canada’s ambassadors of musical diversity” include 6-string violinist Chris McKhool , dueling guitar czars Kevin Laliberté and Eddie Paton, bass master Drew Birston, and the jaw dropping talent of Cuban percussionist Chendy Leon! In this special recording, Sultans of String meet the electricity of sitar master Anwar Khurshid in an innovative collaboration that transcends categorization. Anwar's sitar playing has been featured in Oscar-winning film Life of Pi and The Love Guru. Originally from Pakistan, Anwar now makes Canada his home, regularly collaborating with musicians from other genres including Blues, Jazz, African, Middle Eastern, and Asian music, and has performed across Europe, USA and Asia. Music has the ability to bring together people and cultures in a way that emulates what we love to see in the world, creating a collaboration that breaks down the barriers that divide us, and helping us to see our common humanity, and providing a model for peace.
