Rami Atassi is an interdisciplinary creative professional with 15+ years of work in media & the arts.

In 2021 he founded Guitar Tactics, a guitar school for busy adults in Chicago. Through his curriculum, workshops, and studio classes he has served 150+ students.

Rami is a composer, music producer & guitarist who creates original music. His latest album, Dancing Together (2023, Ropeadope Records) features his eclectic ensemble, The Cosmic Dance Band:

"The Cosmic Dance Band blends sounds of the Middle East with jazz harmony and modern sonics. This group and its combined spirit informs the heart of his latest album, Dancing Together, a procession of desert-baked rhythms and intoxicating hooks, which marks Atassi's arrival as a major player." - Gareth Thompson, AllAboutJazz.com

"Rami Atassi sounds like what might happen if you had a left-field mix of psychedelic and jazz artists—Mdou Moctar, Wes Montgomery, Cave, the Natural Information Society—in your blunt rotation." - Hannah Edgar, Chicago Reader

"For Rami Atassi, sonic inspiration extends far beyond the city’s borders. He has amassed an eclectic range of influences—desert guitar, jazz, Tropicália, samba, Arabic folk music, and Afrobeat—that populate his music." - Joshua M. Miller, Chicago Magazine

Other music production highlights include:

  • Playing for SKYLANDING: The Music of Yoko Ono by The MIYUMI Project (produced by Yoko Ono)
  • Winning “Best Original Music” at the 2022 Fine Arts Film Fest, for his original score of the feature film Bad Animal
