Sultans of String: Sing For Kwanzaa

By Kerry Doole

Sultans of String: "Sing For Kwanzaa " (Indie): The highly-regarded and stylistically eclectic Toronto-based world music ensemble has the holiday season covered. On the eve of this American Thanksgiving weekend, just as they begin an extensive Christmas tour, Sultans of String released a new video for this tune celebrating the Kwanzaa holiday.


Co-produced by SoS leader Chris McKhool and award-winning engineer John 'Beetle' Bailey, this is an uplifting song featuring the musical talents and warm voice of guest Richard Bona, a Grammy-winning bassist from The Cameroons. Sudanese-Canadian musician Waleed Abdulhamid contributes English vocals, and the result is a sweetly melodic song with a strong African vibe. The video clip is a heartwarming one.

Sultans of String have been nominated for a Juno three times, have won three Canadian Folk Music Awards, and made the Billboard charts.

Of note: SoS are fundraising partners with UNHCR, the United Nations Agency for Refugees in Canada.
