Latest update from Africa Oye Festival
BLICK BASSY – 2017 UK TOUR – ATC Live
Following the acclaimed release of Akö – an idiosyncratic yet infectiously catchy blend of guitar, banjo, cello, trombone and the artist’s soulful voice – Blick Bassy returns to the UK.
Akö, which received major acclaim in France, has been praised by the likes of The Guardian, The Observer, London Evening Standard and Songlines Magazine. And, as well as being played by Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe and Cerys Matthews on 6 Music and by Max Reinhardt and Mary Anne Kennedy on BBC Radio 3, Blick’s music was chosen by Apple for a worldwide ad campaign.
