Subcontinental Drift

Subcontinental Drift

Sultans of String with Anwar Khurshid

Self-released

Subcontinental Drift embodies three “Rs”—rambunctious, rowdy, and rousing. The five members of Sultans of String, joined by sitar virtuoso Anwar Khurshid, play their collective tails off throughout this album’s 10 tracks, and boy, do they cook up a storm! The recording blends Indian influence with folk, blues, jazz, and, especially, country swing (play “Enter the Gate” in your store and watch your customers start to grin like crazy). Every now and then the guys take a break and slow things down, but for most of the album, it’s full speed ahead!
