Internationally awarded and honoured Canadian band Sultans of String collaborates with over 30 musicians on Refuge, "a fantastic, moving, dreamlike, epic, timely album." - Ken Micallef (Jazz Times, Stereophile, Downbeat).
Addressing the struggles of life on Mother Earth has always inspired Sultans of String. On this visionary seventh album, Refuge, they bring their unique brand of musical synergy and collaboration to bear on 13 songs that speak to the challenges facing the world's displaced peoples--their stories, their songs, their persistence and their humanity.
Joined by an international cast, some of whom are recent immigrants to North America, the celebrated quintet immerses themselves in the plight of the international refugee, and the humanitarian response that should greet everyone in search of a home.
They are asking for a $5 minimum donation. 100% of the admission fee goes to the Burlington Food Bank, where anyone from Burlington can receive help with putting food on their table.
This project is generously supported by the City of Burlington Arts & Culture Fund.
