Kaoma was a pop group made up in France of former members of the band Touré Kunda: Chyco Dru (bassist), Jacky Arconte (guitarist), Jean-Claude Bonaventure (producer and keyboardist), Michel Abihssira (drums and percussion), Fania (vocals), and Braz Loalwa (lead singer), Chico and Roberta (dancers). Chyco Dru is from Martinique, Jacky Arconte from Guadeloupe, and Braz Loalwa from Brazil.

In 1989, they had a major chart-topping hit with their dance music single "Lambada", a translation of "Llorando se fue", which gave rise to the Lambada dance craze.
