Bassy delivers 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 is a beautiful blend of Blick’s distinctive voice and guitar, cello (Clement Petit), trumpet and keyboards (Alexis Anerilles) and trombone (Johan Blanc).
Now based in France, Blick’s music first took shape with the award-winning band Macase with whom he released many albums, culminating in the release of Akö, which included the track ‘Kiki’, used to launch the iPhone 6 in 2015. http://www.blickbassy.com/
