Haji Basim, an award-winning, passionate and charismatic artist, announces his brand of music that expresses a unique approach and blend of Folk, Devotional, and World music. Basim is an accomplished internationally touring multi-Instrumentalist, who has mastered Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Sitar, etc. He is also a singer-songwriter, who has created a new diverse and spiritually upbeat genre called Urban Folk. His refreshing and innovative blend of folk falls somewhere in between the intimacy of artists such as Trevor Hall or Jose Gonzales and the sensuality and spiritual groove of performers such as Xavier Rudd or Nahko & Medicine For The People, just to mention a few."It is not genre that makes music great, but the ability to translate emotion and thoughts. For many years I have been busy training myself to create good music, reaching out to listeners with lots of energy, uplifting melodies, angelic vocals, and thought-provoking lyricism. I derive a lot of encouragement when I see how people react to my music at music concerts and music festivals across the world," said Haji Basim.Haji Basim's brand of Urban Folk music was created from the influences of several styles including Folk, Soul, Hip Hop, Flamenco, Bluegrass, Bossa Nova and Neo Soul. In finding a deep connection with other genres of music, he has made it evident to audiences the world over.
