Syrian Heart. Chicago Soul. Bassel & The Supernaturals tells the story of Bassel Almadani's experience as a first generation Syrian-American, creating soulful melodies, funk-inspired rhythms and captivating lyrics regarding love, loss, otherness and the war in Syria. The group makes its national television debut this year as part of a new PBS docuseries, The Express Way starring Dule Hill.

Echoing Stevie Wonder’s rhythm and blues, Jamiroquai’s social justice-centered lyricism over jazz-infused funk and Steely Dan’s seamless amalgam of American music, Bassel & The Supernaturals evoke joy and thoughtfulness in diverse audiences across North America. In addition to performing in major festivals, performance halls, concert series and clubs, the group works closely with organizations on events and residencies that build awareness and empathy for Syrian refugees and immigrants. Deeply inspired by Otis Redding, Bassel uses the stage as a vehicle to unite his listeners and share the story of his cultural duality. A substantial portion of their proceeds benefit the Karam Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on building a better future for Syria.

Bassel & The Supernaturals has performed in over 400 concerts and advocacy events between on stages including SXSW, John F. Kennedy Center, The Cleveland Museum of Art, Summerfest and Millennium Park, and supported internationally-touring artists such as Youssou N'Dour, Aesop Rock, Emancipator, Brother Ali, The Dandy Warhols, Sinkane, and many others.
