Bolasie has been in spectacular form in recent months and is joined by fellow Premier League representative, West Brom midfielder Yussuf Mulumbu.
Experienced striker Dieumerci Mbokani will also link up with the squad from Dynamo Kiev, while Werder Bremen goalkeeper Cedric Makiadi has also been called up.
As expected, TP Mazembe stopper Robert Kidiaba heads up the local-based contingent of seven players, along with AS Vita Club striker Firmin Mubele Ndombe, who was named African Inter-Club Player of the Year (best player on the continent) last week.
