Press play: Petite Noir

todaySeptember 18, 2015

          Back in late 2013 Llunga realized he wanted to make music. Coming from a small South Africa town he was faced with challenges from choosing God, and pop music. “Church band practice was the same night as a recoding opportunity.” Llunga expressed to The Guardian in 2013. Llunga got his big break when featured with R&B artist Solange Knowles ona collaboration project. The rest was history. 

   It’s been a little over  two years since we have heard from the artist after his single debut ‘Till we ghosts’. Llunga has expressed his deliberate pace allows for an ever evolving sensibility for growth. ‘La Vie est Bella’ (Life is Beautiful) was released earlier this week. The artist offers an interesting sound of 80’s and new wave with a bit of an electronic twist. Crazy right? The album stands alone in genre.  Binding so many genres allows for aunique sound in each of his eleven tracks.         

    Llunga’s family transpires from his father who was the former minister of the Republic of Congo. He has been able to experience lows of racism but puts it all to pen and paper. Songs like ‘Down’ and ‘Freedom’ are chilled out with a hint ofafro-beat his personal experiences. Llunga is gaining grip not just in the states but internationally.           

      Petite Noir just kicked off his touroverseas with upcoming shows in Germany, France, and the Netherlands.
