Petite Noir

South Africa

Petite Noir – aka Cape Town singer-songwriter/producer Yannick Ilunga – is one of the forefathers of noir wave, that South African sound that squeezes together kwaito, pop and post-punk to deeply imaginative, neo-gothic effect. As he himself calls it, it’s “new wave with an African aesthetic”.
