Blick Bassy formed his first band in Cameroon at the age of 17. He began to reinvigorate Bassa as a language that could be used in modern music, a language that he felt the younger generations should appreciate. After 10 years of performing with Macase, Blick grew frustrated with the lack of infrastructure for an artist in Cameroon and decided to move to Paris. It was there, in 2005, that Blick started his solo career, at first collaborating with a wide range of artists, before eventually releasing his debut album ‘Léman’ in 2009 followed by the stunning ‘Ako’ in 2015.
