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 Ako Blick Bassy delivers “1958”, a defiant tribute to the heroes who fought and died for the independence of his native Cameroon. Its focus is specific, but its themes - the bondage of neocolonialism, the need for heroes, the relevance of history and the search for true identity - are universal. An album to thaw the heart and sharpen the mind.
