BLICK BASSY AKO Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
Blick Bassy's stunning and original debut for pioneering French label N Frmat! Composed and performed by Blick Bassy, accompanied by a unique ensemble of guitar, banjo, cello and trombone, Ak s eleven sparklingly original tracks are a musical revelation. Sung in Bassa, a language and tradition that he has long hampioned, Bassy sings of the village he grew up in rural Cameroon - drawing connections between the itinerant musicians of his childhood with journeyman blues legend Skip James. While the influence of the Malian folk of Ali Farka Toure can be detected on Tell Me and Mama, and the complex melodic patterns betray his Cameroonian roots throughout, this is an album that makes subtle references to a musical palette that ranges from the Gypsy Swing flavours of Wap Do Wap to the sparse and haunting singer songwriter classic in the making Ndjl.
