E2 Live! is excited to announce the addition of 6-person band Bassel & the Supernaturalts to the E2 Live! roster!
Syrian heart, Midwestern soul. Bassel Almadani’s roots run deep in the music world, where at age 10 he learned how to play the violin before tackling the drums. In 2003, he picked up a guitar and quickly began writing & performing his own music. After recording two studio albums, countless tour dates, and moving from Ohio to Chicago, Bassel & the Supernaturals was born – think Stevie Wonder meets Steely Dan’s “Aja.” Their soulful music draws a deep connection between the ongoing chaos in his parents’ homeland of Syria and his personal challenges in the US – including a massive house fire and the theft of his automobile. In addition to performing in clubs and festivals across the nation, Bassel has partnered with universities and charity organizations to host seminars and benefit concerts drawing attention to the Syrian Crisis along with issues related to Arab/Muslim-American hostility in the US.
