Black Yaya is the solo project of singer-songwriter David Ivar, who is also known as one half of French duo Herman Dune. Ivar has apparently woke up one morning in November of 2012 feeling like he wanted to give a break to the band and start his very own thing. And so he did. Just over two years later, and after moving to LA, he’s recorded several songs and comes March 2nd, his self-titled debut album will hit the shelves via City Slang.
Black Yaya has shared the catchy and folky harmonica-charged single ‘Vigilante’. Take a listen now.
Black Yaya is embarking on a European tour this April, with several dates in the UK including a London show at The Lexington on April 9th.
