Three time JUNO Award nominees and triple CFMA winners Sultans of String release their 10th anniversary vinyl retrospective, entitled 10. For a decade now the band has thrilled audiences with their global sonic tapestry of Spanish Flamenco, Arabic folk, Gypsy-jazz, Cuban rhythms, South Asian and East Coast Celtic music, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. The vinyl-only release, 10, features re-mastered cuts from their five album catalog, as well as an unreleased track from their Christmas Caravan album.

"We all grew up listening to vinyl, everything from Peter Gabriel and Pink Floyd, to the great folk singers," says bandleader/producer/violinist Chris McKhool. "I took a break for a number of years when CDs were all the rage, but came back to records a few years ago when exposing my daughter to cool music. There is something so special about the ritual of listening to vinyl – the sound, the smell, the feel of it. Time and space are put on hold, and I lose myself. After making and performing on countless CDs, we can now cross off making a vinyl album from our bucket list!" 10 is more than a global sonic tapestry it's a musical promise that embraces differences while finding common ground across culture, land, and time. While the album treks across all kinds of musical terrain, the fertile soil beneath each track is fed by hope unhindered and freedom found.

At the core of the band's sound is Queen's Diamond Jubilee recipient Chris McKhool's fiery fiddle, melded seamlessly with founding guitarist Kevin Laliberté's (Jesse Cook) rumba rhythm – together their musical synergy created Sultans of String's signature sound – the intimate and playful relationship between violin and guitar. Added to this rich foundation are core band members bass master Drew Birston (Chantal Kreviazuk), guitar wizard Eddie Paton (ReDuX:RMx), and Cuban percussion master Rosendo Chendy Leon (Alex Cuba). This album features special guest performances by Anwar Khurshid on sitar (Life of Pi, Love Guru), Andrew Collins on Mandolin (Foggy Hogtown Boys), Bassam Bishara on Oud, Ernie Tollar on Bansuri, The Chieftains' Paddy Moloney on tin whistle, and a Turkish String Collective from Istanbul.
