As much as possible the year 2021 will be devoted to local Indianapolis Jazz Artists here on Have You Heard. The jazz community in Indianapolis has been through a lot in the past 10 months, as has everybody else, and we want to do everything we can to promote and spotlight all the great artists we have in this town.

It gives me great pleasure to open this year with a show featuring the music and artistry of soul singer Bashiri Asad. Bashiri is a great musician, smart business man, loving family man, and just a beautiful human being. Bashiri puts on a great show and wields a tight band he calls BE ON IT. This episode of Have You Heard we’ll be playing music from their newest album “The Way We Are“. The album is soulful, funky, and beautiful. The music of Bashiri Asad just makes you feel good.

If you weren’t a fan of Bashiri before this show, we know you are now!
