Sultan of the Disco

Time to relive the disco days so put on your dancing shoes and groove along!

South Korean indie band Sultan of the Disco returns to Singapore shores with its quirky brand of vintage sounds for modern listeners. Named after the song Sultan of Swing by British rock band Dire Straits, the five-man band takes its inspiration from soul and funk music from the golden age of disco — as performed by bands like Chic, Kool and the Gang, and Jackson 5 in the 1970s.

The combination of exceptional music, hilarious antics and wacky costumes has fuelled the band’s popularity and taken them to major international festivals like the Glastonbury Festival in the UK where they have performed twice, the Summer Sonic in Japan, and CMJ Music Marathon in the US.

Lead vocalist Nahzam Sue is responsible for drawing out the band’s vintage disco sound while the dancing is choreographed by M J.J. Hassan; Ganji Kim on drums, US G on bass, and guitarist Hong-ki round up the quintet.
