    This one was first released as ‘Defao dans Santa’ where it notes only Defao as composer and the only other vocalist credited is Koffi Olomide (!). Though there are others in the mix I’m not sure it is Boziana who is usually much stronger and more distinctive.

    The guitarist credited on the other version is Sedjo Kha rather than the usual Roxy Tshimpaka.

    It may be a non-official album (despite having ‘Choc Stars’ clearly in the title)

    Probably it is from 1985 as by the end of 85 they ditched a lot of the animations used here for ‘Swele Ma’ (after Boziana left)

    The album I’m missing (and so is youtube) if you by chance have it is the one ‘Les Editions Bobet Presentet’ (first track Ena)

    Choc Stars ‎– Retrouvailles À Paris Volume 1 – 4

    One of the greatest multiple album sets of Congolese music is, in my opinion, the incredible four LP series, CHOC STARS RETROUVAILLES A PARIS on the Rythmes et Musique label. This is a set that I return to time and time again with joy and pleasure. Astonishingly enough, this set has never made it to CD reissue. In today’s era of double CDs stuffed with filler between the good songs, I am always nostalgic for this wonderful set of albums where every song is an “A-Side”. -DJ Daudi
