Global Notes: Bassel And The Supernaturals Raise Funds For Syria

Bassel & The Supernaturals combines neo-soul and funk to address issues like the war in Syria. The nine-piece ensemble is led by Syrian-American Bassel Almadani.

Their newest release, Elements, is dedicated to tragedies in Almadani’s life, including the murder of his cousin, the destruction of his home and the sudden death of the band’s bassist.

The album is being released through an Indiegogo campaign, and 20 percent of the album’s proceeds benefit the Karam Foundation, which provides resources to those affected by the war in Syria.
