Ancient Rhythms and Melodies from Anatolia and the old world….
Sultan is the coming together of some of Melbourne’s top performers of Turkish, Balkan and Middle Eastern music. The band is made up of traditional and non-traditional instruments and explores the ancient sounds of Anatolia and The Old World. Their performance is truly a journey from the shores of the Black Sea to the Arabic peninsular and North Africa. The music conjures the desert winds and the smell of spices and is often accompanied by exotic belly dancers.Instrumentation: vocals, bendir, darbuka, acoustic guitar, soprano saxophone and double bass.
