Blick Bassy

Blick Bassy’s stunning and original debut for pioneering French label Nø Førmat!
!
Written and sung by Blick Bassy - in Bassa, one of some 260 spoken languages in Cameroon - and
accompanied by a unique ensemble of guitar, banjo, cello and trombone - Akö’s eleven sparklingly original
tracks are a musical revelation. Remarkable then, to consider that these are recordings that were never
intended for release. Bassy’s original idea was to get together with the cellist Clément Petit and trombonist
Fidel Fourneyron to record a few songs in homage to his longtime hero Skip James. By chance, the studio
they hired was directly below the offices of Nø Førmat!, the innovative French label run by Laurent Bizot,
who happened to hear the results of this unlikely yet inspired musical alchemy. As Laurent relates, “when I
heard the first song Aké, I was stunned. It sounded like a dream, so light, a voice floating in the sky.
Production was minimal but bold and the music had a feel not often heard with African songwriters. They
had taken risks they probably wouldn’t have done if the music was meant for release. The lack of budget,
the time restraints and the restriction to three musicians has conjured something entirely unique and very
fresh. Exactly what I like!”
