Sultans of String are back with their amazing new holiday cover for the song “Happy Christmas.” The video features some of the greatest legends in music, this gives the video a nice anthem, “We Are The World” feel.
In the first week of its release, Sultans of String’s first festive offering, Christmas Caravan, grabs the #6 spot on Billboard’s World Music charts. With this genre-hopping disc, these 3x JUNO nominees/3x CFMA winning ambassadors of musical diversity have expanded the traditional notion of Christmas music, injecting it with new-found energy and non-traditional sounds. Recorded and co-produced with JUNO Award winning engineer John ‘Beetle’ Bailey, this isn’t your typical holiday album. You may recognize a few titles, but you’ve never experienced seasonal music quite like this before.
Sultans of String’s acclaimed world music tapestry has been amplified on this release through its embrace of orchestration and pop, and spurred on by a stellar cast of guest musicians, bringing even more color to their lively palette.
