Bassel Al-madani is a first generation Syrian American who started out as an indie folk singer in Columbus, Ohio. He got a bit of the soul bug upon arriving in Chicago. But his music is not all about getting down on the dance floor. Bassel & The Supernaturals draw a deep connection between the ongoing chaos in his parents' homeland and his personal experiences growing up in the US.and he tries to raise awareness about the humanitarian crisis in Syria. The band plays a Valentine’s Day show at Double Door but before that, they get the Morning Shift’s toes tapping.
