Bovick & L’Orchestre Veve – Venus (Democratic Republic Of Congo, 1970, African)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Venus“, a cover of the classic 60s song initially recorded the american band Shocking Blue, adaptated here in an funky Afro Jerk Rock version with french lyrics by the legendary Congolese artist Bovick, backed by the also very well known Orchestre Veve from the Democratic Republic of Congo (former Zaïre) – Enjoy !
