Petite Noir - La Maison Noir / The Black House EP
The long-awaited follow-up to Petite’s acclaimed 2015 album La Vie Est belle / Life Is Beautiful is finally here! The mini-album features contributions from New York rapper/poet Saul Williams and Detroit rapper Danny Brown, who Petite Noir previously collaborated with on Brown’s 2016 album Atrocity Exhibition. With singles like ‘Blame Fire’ already gaining a lot of traction locally and overseas, there’s no doubt the EP will be heard everywhere.
It's through the lens of Noirwave that La Maison Noir was created. Noirwave is a movement created by Petite Noir and creative director RhaRha, with its roots in music but its vision fixed firmly on the creative future. Responding to current cultural movements centred in Africa - arising against a backdrop of international anxieties concerning borders, nationhood and globalisation - Noirwave offers followers a citizenship which rejoices in freedom of movement, physically and creatively.
