Petite Noir

Saturday 17th June

Petite Noir is the architect of Noirwave – music and culture that draws energy from punk aesthetics and the fragmented identity of today’s African diaspora.


Petite Noir is the Congolese musician and artist Yannick Ilunga.

Born in Belgium, and raised in South Africa, he’s collaborated with Danny Brown, Saul Williams and Yasiin Bey and has also been championed by Solange, Young Fathers and Foals.

MotherFather is his long-awaited second album, and it has a subtitle: ‘The darkness is comforting sometimes’.

As Petite Noir explains: ‘It’s about going through the darkness. But it’s also about rebirth. Because the dark times are needed for us to grow.’
