ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No. 55 Petite Noir

After achieving cult acclaim for a number of EP releases over the last few years, Congolese-Angolan solo artist Yannick Ilunga, aka Petite Noir, is finally taking that first brave step with the release of his debut album later this year.

Since 2012, Petite Noir has been a huge talking point for those who look to discover new and interesting music. His African heritage mixed with western influence has given the artist a whole new sound in modern music and made him one of the most invigorating talents of the modern era.

Petite Noir will embark on a short European tour, with stops in London, Glasgow and Manchester, this September and his debut album 'La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful' is due out on the 11th September.
