Pre-order Information

Petite Noir is the Congolese musician and artist Yannick Ilunga. Born in Belgium, raised in South Africa, and now based between London and Paris, Ilunga is the architect of Noirwave – a musical and cultural movement that draws creative energy from punk aesthetics and the fragmented identity of today’s African diaspora.

MotherFather is his long-awaited second album, and it has a subtitle: ‘The darkness is comforting sometimes’. As Ilungna explains: “It’s about going through the darkness. But it’s also about rebirth. Because the dark times are needed for us to grow.”

It features production by Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio, CID RIM, Moshik Kop, Tropics, and a guest feature from rising star Sampa The Great, and Grammy- nominated Florida jazz musician Theo Croker.
