Vocals: Josky Kiambukuta with Djo Mpoyi, Ndombe Opetum and Wuta Mayi. Guitars: Lutumba Simaro, Thierry Mantuika and Gerry Dialungana. Bass: possibly Flavien Makabi. So maybe, save Simaro, this version has a completely different guitar line-up:
(I'm not saying that's the way it is, only that it's possible. But I am sure Franco does not play here.)


Decca played on nearly all Franco compositions on record in his time with OKJ. But this is a Simaro composition. I'd put my money on FM.

(The first pic is from the sleeve of the album, the other three were taken in Brussels nine years later.)

Deadly deadly...the guitar filler on this one at 0:30, 0:45, 1:01...reminds me of the filler at 1:07, 1:20, 2:28 on 'Youyou' posted by Kindu. Must have been the same guy (sic)! Wonderful songs; I have no regrets for having lived in this world at the present time.

Is it because he passed on? - Lutumba Simaro. Kabongo is more entertaining than ever before. Josky (Lead vocal), (Djo Mpoy, Papa Ndombe, Wuta Mayi) - Chorus, the harmony is made in heaven!

Abou: Could the lady at 5:00 to 7:00 be Madame Lutumba? She looks mature and motherly, unlike the regular dancers and singers
