BASrelief is a creative music group co-led by mandolinist Majid Araim and cellist Benjamin Shirley, with Julian Scott Bryan on percussion.  The group seeks to fashion a space for the traditions of jazz, mountain music, and experimental improvisation to interact, with a focus on deep listening, dynamic energy, and collaborative composition.  BASrelief released their debut self-titled album in 2019, and is thrilled to present their new CD “Given Dreams” in October of 2022.
