Sultans of String - Walking Through The Fire

Presented by Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe

This incredible Indigenous collaboration is one not to be missed! Sultans of String, Alyssa Delbaere-Sawchuk, Marc Meriläinen (Nadjiwan), Shannon Thunderbird, Inuit Singers Kendra Tagoona & Tracy Sarazin, The North Sound, dancer Josée Bourgeois, and a multimedia extravaganza featuring Northern Cree, Duke Redbird, and more will bring the stage to life in a one of a kind show!

This performance brings the magic of collaboration to the stage, with award-winning First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists from across Turtle Island / Canada joined by BILLBOARD charting 3x JUNO Award nominees and 3x CFMA winners Sultans of String!

From Métis fiddling to an East Coast Kitchen Party, from Rumba to Rock, to the drumming of the Pacific Northwest, experience the beauty and diversity of musicians onstage.

The songs beautifully reveal the depths of contemporary Indigenous experience and music, expressed in the spirit of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action, and Final Report that asks that Indigenous and non-Indigenous people work together as an opportunity to show a path forward.

Sultans of String is a fiercely independent band that has performed at JUNOfest, NYC’s legendary Birdland Jazz Club, Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, and London’s Trafalgar Square. Led by Queen’s Diamond Jubilee recipient and Ottawa home-boy McKhool, they have recorded and performed with such diverse luminaries as Paddy Moloney & The Chieftains, Sweet Honey in The Rock, Richard Bona, Alex Cuba, Ruben Blades, Benoit Bourque, and Béla Fleck.
