Blick Bassy
This event has passed

Atrium 360°

 

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
