As part of FranceRocks Summerfest 2017, a French music festival co-presented by The Bureau Export, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, and France Rocks, in partnership with a network of major venues and institutions, on July, 13, 2017, Lincoln Center presents Blick Bassy to release and present his catchy blend of guitar, banjo, cello, trombone and soulful voice.

Accompanied by his two fellow musicians, Clément Petit on cello and Johan Blanc on trombone, Blick Bassy has been regarded by The Guardian as " a fine and original singer" who gives some of the "best live performances".

Blick Bassy formed his first band in Cameroon at the age of 17. They were called The Jazz Crew and would later develop into Macase, an inventive jazz fusion group inspired by local rhythms with three singers, all singing a different Cameroonian language. It was here that Blick began to revinvigorate bassa as a language that could be used in modern music, a language that he felt the younger generations should appreciate.
