Ameen Saleem

Bassist, Ameen Saleem, was born July 2, 1979, and raised in Washington, DC. He now resides in Brooklyn, New York.

Ameen says about his involvement in the Arts...

“I'm a chill, laid back person until I get a bass in my hand... then it's on. Love, love, love music and anything art related. People often ask what kind of music do I play. I respond, “I play bass.” All genres are fair game. If I don't know the genre, I'll improvise, listen, and find my way into the groove.”

He goes on to say, “Born and raised in DC. Proud of that. I love my city. But I also love to travel. You never know where I'll be. I go a little bit of everywhere through music. The only way to know me really is to meet me or some of my close friends. I have many. I'm a people person. No enemies that I know of.”
