Petite Noir

Petite Noir brings his signature "noirwave" sound back to Cape Town, where he was raised.

Yannick Ilunga better known as Petite Noir, is a songwriter, musician, and record producer. His debut EP The King of Anxiety was released in 2015. Pitchfork Media praised the EP as "seamless, subtle and lithe and luminously sexy". His debut studio album La vie est belle / Life Is Beautiful was released in September of the same year.

Pitchfork further described his sound as: "Psychedelically-tinged baroque contemporary African pop with heavy goth undertones".
