In the richly inventive music of Cameroonian singer-songwriter Blick Bassy, layers of guitar, banjo, kora, cello, and trombone underscore the soulfulness and warmth of Bassy’s soft falsetto with a dash of whimsy. Singing in his native Bassa language, one of 260 spoken in Cameroon, Bassy rose to prominence in his home country as part of the award-winning jazz fusion group Macase before moving to his current home in France. With a track chosen to be featured in Apple’s iPhone 6 ad campaign, his critically acclaimed third full-length album, Ako, launched him into the international spotlight. Discover the “charming and wildly eclectic songs” (Guardian, U.K.) of a true African original during this rare New York appearance.
Presented in collaboration with The Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Bureau Export, and the France Rocks Festival
Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
