One of Africa's most inventive and important new artists, Cameroon's sensational young singer-songwriter blends his distinctive voice and music to create a sparkling, bluesy, soulful display of sound. In the words of Rough Trade - "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."
Blick Bassy's career took off internationally in 2015 when the tech giant Apple took a shine to his subtle falsetto voice and deft banjo playing and used a clip from his album Akö in the launch for the iphone 6.
Join this soulful Cameroonian genius for a special intimate show off the back of his latest album 1958, a defiant tribute to the heroes who fought and died for the independence of his native Cameroon.
Senegalese Kora player Kadialy Kouyate will be opening the show.
