I don’t know much about Blick Bassy, in fact it was only yesterday I happened upon his Akö album on the excellent No Format label. However this new video is for a track (and a stunning one at that) which features on an iPhone advert so I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from him in months to come.
I only came across him thanks to a mail out from the French Music Export Bureau, as the Cameroonian musician is now based in France and is set to join Orchestra Baobab at Royal Festival Hall here in the UK this Friday! I highly recommend it if you’re in the area on the strength of Orchestra Baobab alone. I saw them a few years back, and they totally upstaged the headlining Afro Cuban Allstars.
I couldn’t find this track on Soundcloud / Bandcamp so apologies for anyone who can’t view it in their country but here’s another track from the album so you get the idea.
