Petite Noir - La Vie Est Belle/Life Is Beautiful

Yannick Ilunga AKA Petite Noir doesn't mince words when he outlines the message woven into his debut album La Vie Est Belle/Life Is Beautiful: "Stay Positive." Yannick is half-Congolese, half-Angolan and was raised in South Africa. His musical background ranges from metal to nu-disco. He’s since developed into a confident singer and songwriter with a wide palette reflecting all the cultural dimensions of his life. Earlier 2015’s EP The King Of Anxiety blended raw angular energy, bright African rhythms and subtle R&B into his alt guitar sound, and now La Vie Est Belle/Life Is Beautiful takes that sound to louder, more defiant places.
