Manu Chao La Ventura

Manu Chao is a singer of French and Spanish (Basque, Galician) origin. Chao is a sensation who manages to sing his infectious tunes in no less than seven languages. For those playing at home: the list goes French, Spanish, English, Italian, Galician, Arabic and Portuguese.

From his early work with the English- influenced rockabilly group Hot Pants to his breakthrough with the band Mano Negra, Chao’s sound is mostly characterised by energetic, lively rhythms and a distinct informality which allows the audience to get involved and feel close to his sound and energy. After forming the new group, Radio Bemba, a new kind of music was composed. The newer songs were primarily sung in Spanish with far fewer French tracks and the musical style had shifted from punk and alternative styles to the street vibe that Chao was aiming for. The songs were collectively released as Clandestino in 1998, under Manu Chao’s own name.
His unique taste, adaptability and love of the sounds of the street has made him one of the most sought after live performers in the world and has seen him make headlines in festivals the world over. He truly is an international star! He has given numerous hits, but it really is all about the occasion and the kind of electric energy that Chao brings to the stage. It doesn’t matter which language you speak – as long as you come ready to dance!
