Philippe Cataldo (born August 24, 1954 in Bône in Algeria) is a French singer and composer. He is best known for his 1986 hit single "Les Divas du dancing", which deals with the suave swingers of tropical nights and which reached number 8 in the French charts that year.[1] Cataldo himself composed the music for the song, but the lyrics were by musician and translator Jean Schultheis.

Cataldo returned to the stage briefly for a concert tour called RFM Party 80, which celebrated the hits and artists of the eighties.
