Youlou, Josky & Santa - Dona Beija (1992)

Here is another album featuring Youlou Mabiala, this time with another OK Jazz great who is still with us thanks to the grace of God, Josky Kiambukuta.

This album is like an early Christmas present for you all, because it also features Santa! Not the man with the white beard though, a lady with a sweet voice called Santa.

The album was released 20 years ago in 1992, it has not dated well because of the synthesizers and drum machines but if you can listen beyond these sounds there are some beautiful songs beautifully sung. 'Mamile' is a highlight.
