Who hasn’t heard of the 2000 massive internationally-acclaimed hit and Grammy Award-winning single “Who Let The Dogs Out?” Sure it was made famous by the Baha Men (a band that utilized a popular style of Bahamian music called Junkanoo), but did you know it was written and recorded two years before, in the very exciting and traditional soca style by Trinidadian-born and now Toronto-based singer-songwriter Anslem Douglas? It was originally, affectionately called “Doggie” and here is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O27fagObxaM to that first recording, which was a huge hit in the Caribbean initially – and which is very different from the version that most of us know. The covered version was a chart success in many countries, and also became a popular song at U.S. sporting events and was featured in the 2009 hit comedy The Hangover.

The Black Canadian Awards ceremony is an event that reflects a commitment to showcasing and celebrating achievements of Black Canadian professionals, artists, trailblazers and leaders within the community. The organization has received more than 20,000 total nomination votes over the past eight months.

The Perfect Proposal Song for This Valentine’s Day is by Sultans of String!

Happy Valentine's Day from Sultans of StringWorld music super group Sultans of String, who play everything from flamenco to Arabic folk, gypsy-jazz to Cuban rhythms are back in Ontario after a successful 10 date tour in beautiful British Columbia during which they performed with Symphony of the Kootenays, led by conductor Jeff Faragher who joined the Sultans on the tour on cello, as well as the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra.

The band includes leader and violinist Chris McKhool, Kevin Laliberte and Eddie Paton on guitars, Drew Birston on bass, Chendy Leon and Alberto Suarez on percussion.Sultans of String Quintet

Chris McKhool and Sultans of String would like to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine’s Day this week.

I wanted to share this song I wrote as a proposal for my wife Catherine… We are both environmentalists, and we met at a composting convention… I was hired to sing environmental songs that day, and Catherine was the environmental representative at the London School Board at the time. We met over a composting unit, and our relationship just grew organically from there…

Please have a listen to Will You Marry Me, the perfect proposal song if you’re thinking of popping the question to your loved one this February 14th!

Coming up next for Sultans of String is a performance with the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, February 22, 2014, 8:00 PM, at Glad Tidings Church, 1101 Regent Street, Sudbury ON.

If you have an opportunity to see Sultans of String in concert, don’t miss it because you’ll be in for a magical evening! Get their new and most ambitious album to date, Symphony!, now at www.sultansofstring.com under the Listen/Buy tab. You can WIN a box set of all four of their CDs by participating in their Valentine’s Day contest on Facebook. The contest post is pinned to the top of their page at www.facebook.com/sultansofstring. Good luck!
