Blitz The Ambassador is an American rapper, MC, producer and composer who was born in Accra, in Ghana with the name Samuel Bazawule. In 2001 he immigrated to the US. Once there, he was soon blending the music of his native Ghana with the sounds of his new homeland, resulting in a completely unique style. He makes full use of the traditions of his West-African birthplace in his music. His songs are based on rap but with playful ease and in an organic way he blends in jazz, soul, funk and afrobeat. At the North Sea Jazz Festival he will be appearing with his band Embassy MVMT, which will be supplemented by a horn section. His latest album Native Sun clearly demonstrates what Blitz The Ambassador stands for: he looks back to his roots while embracing new ideas.
