Blick Bassy
Imagine an African artist with the tenderly subversive touch of Bon Iver, the haunting falsetto of Skip James, the razor-like mind of Akala, and the inventiveness of Moses Sumney. You’ve just imagined Blick Bassy. In the slipstream of his acclaimed album Akö,
Blick Bassy delivers "1958", a defiant tribute to the heroes who fought and died for the independence of his native Cameroun. Its focus is specific, but its themes - the bondage of neo-colonialism, the need for heroes, the relevance of history and the search for true identity - are universal. 1958 keeps faith with the style he’s been developing since he turned solo in 2009 – a style
unique in contemporary African music, fed by Bassy’s love for the aerial soul of singers like Skip James or Marvin Gaye, and by his deep reverence for the traditional music of Cameroon and other parts of Africa. The DNA of this style is hard decode: its structure seems both rooted in specifics, and yet gleefully universal, pan-African, global; its allure is both reverentially aged, gentle, and at the same time, iconoclastically new.
