20% goes to Karam Foundation's humanitarian mission to build a better future for Syria.


"Aleppo" is a high-energy song celebrating Bassel's memories of visiting Syria as a child. This is the 1st of 3 videos from a live studio session at Chicago's I.V. Labs, with meals prepared by local refugees. The release is coordinated with the launch of their #AmplifyPeace U.S. tour (Oct 19-28): Learn More

"Lost" is the debut single from the latest Bassel & The Supernaturals record: Elements (Feb 2017). The song is dedicated to their late bassist Mason Cormie and to Bassel's cousin Aya in #Syria.











Bassel & The Supernaturals combines neo-soul and funk with captivating lyrics about love, loss, and a war in Syria that has affected Bassel Almadani’s family along with 10,000,000 others.

The soulful Syrian-American vocalist and his ensemble raised over $11,000 during the preorder campaign for their full-length album, Elements (2017), with over $3,000 in donations for humanitarian aid in Syria. Their album was premiered by Noisey (Vice) and led to their involvement in the nationally-acclaimed SXSW showcase ContraBanned: #MusicUnites featuring artists from the diaspora of the countries targeted by the travel ban. They've since been featured on PRI, Al Jazeera, Reuters, Paste Magazine, Huffington Post, NowThis, and many others. In addition to performing in clubs and festivals across the nation, Bassel partners with universities and charity organizations nationwide to host seminars, workshops, and benefit concerts drawing attention to the crisis in Syria.


"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 and, perhaps, new political awareness. The bandleader 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
