Petite Noir is Yannick Ilunga, a Belgian-born, Congolese singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer from Cape Town. This talented, genre-defying artist released his debut EP The King of Anxiety in January 2015 on Domino Records. The EP, featuring “Till We Ghosts” and “Chess”, was followed up in September 2015 with his debut album La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful. Both releases received worldwide press acclaim with the album receiving an outstanding metacritic rating of 79/100. Influential music site, Pitchfork, gave The King of Anxiety an 8.2 score and hailed Petite Noir as “pop music’s future” in their review. In the UK “Down” and “Best” were playlisted by BBC 6 Music.
La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful went on to win Best Alternative Album at the South African Music Awards.
