Bassel & The Supernaturals (Syrian Heart | Chicago)
“Bassel Almadani doesn’t want audiences to just have a good time getting down at shows. He wants fans to leave Bassel & the Supernaturals shows with a sense of connection… The band leader of the contemplative indie-funk ensemble is first generation Syrian-American and has been using the band’s shows and releases to benefit humanitarian efforts in war-torn Syria.”– Jessica Hopper, Chicago Tribune
