Blick Bassy

Please note that customers that had previously booked tickets for the cancelled concert on Monday 25 May 2020 will need to re-book their tickets. Tickets for May 2020 concert will not be valid for this event.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 the true identity – are universal.

‘One of Africa’s most inventive and distinctive singer-songwriter’
