Bonaventure, real name Soraya Lutangu, follows up her 'Complexion' single released on NON Worldwide last year with her EP, 'FREE LUTANGU,' out on PTP in May. Described by Lutangu as having been born out of "a violent clash of sorrow and love," this EP explores themes of institutional racism and oppression - something she's experienced first hand growing up in Lausanne, Switzerland, of mixed African and European heritage. Listeners are confronted head-on by these issues with the pummeling opener, "Supremacy," acting as an ominous movie trailer narrated by samples of Sister Souljah's speech from Bill Moyer's PBS series 'Listening To America,' and in titles such as "Mulatre" and Diaspora." Closing track "Fearlings" also sees Bonaventure collaborate with artist and writer Hannah Black - who contributes on vocals - offering a first glimpse into their ANXIETINA project, a performance piece realized in music, words and textiles by Lutangu, Black and designer Ebba Fransen-Waldhor.

'FREE LUTANGU' will be released digitally on PTP in May, with the vinyl edition set for a summer release together with a remix package featuring Endgame, Ziúr, Prison Religion, Y1640, Jackie, and PTP label head Geng.
