SARATOGA SPRINGS —Bassel & The Supernaturals are coming to Saratoga Springs for the first time to stage a performance at Caffe Lena on Sunday, June 25.
The touring band uses soulful melodies, funk-inspired rhythms and captivating lyrics to tell the story of Bassel Almadani’s experience as a first generation Syrian-America.
Bassel & The Supernaturals has performed in over 400 concerts and advocacy events between 2016-2023 on stages including SXSW, John F. Kennedy Center, The Cleveland Museum of Art, Summerfest, and Millennium Park, and supported internationally touring artists such as Youssou N’Dour, Aesop Rock, Emancipator, Brother Ali, The Dandy Warhols, Sinkane, and many others.
The band’s self-described bio points to their sound as echoing Stevie Wonder’s rhythm and blues, Jamiroquai’s social justice centered lyricism over jazz-infused funk, and Steely Dan’s seamless amalgam of American music.
