The Chicago-based group will be in residence Oct. 18-21 with the Guest Artist Series, providing outreach services to schools and the community.

This new partnership allows Quad City Arts to reach a different audience, expanding its outreach efforts to a new location. Quad City Arts is proud to support a Quad Cities staple in its new location, the association said. This is the first of many new partnerships aimed at activating new spaces and reaching more people.

Bassel & The Supernaturals tells the story of Bassel Almadani’s experience as a first generation Syrian American using moving melodies, funk-inspired beats and captivating lyrics about love, loss and war in Syria, according to the statement. Deeply inspired by Otis Redding, Bassel uses the stage as a vehicle to engage audiences at SXSW, John F. Kennedy Center, and Summerfest, among others.
