Episode 83 features an interview with Cameroonian singer and songwriter Blick Bassy who was one of the highlights and major ‘discoveries’ of Womad 2018. Blick sings in his native tongue of Bassa (one of 270 languages spoken in Cameroon) and has delivered 3 albums and developed a “live’ stage presence that now resonates with a growing fan base. He also had one of his songs (sung in Bassa) used globally in a TVC for Apple I-phone 6.
