Default Manu Chao

I'm not a huge fan but given that his new album, La radiolina, has been given 5 stars in the latest Uncut I thought it was time a thread was made. There are a few incredible songs on it, namely Tristeza Maleza, La vida tombola, Me llaman Calle, and that's only after a few listens. It's loaded with south american nostalgia, reminiscent of Buena Vista Social Club at times, as well as Cesaria Evora. There's also a fair few rockabilly/reggae and whatnot tunes on there to mix it up a bit. So check it. - Manu Chao - Barcelona -

Manu Chao - La Radiolina

Manu Chao - Rainin' in paradize

Manu chao is great. My spanish teacher used to put on some of his music in class all the time...

His new album is fun, but I've only heard small amounts of his older stuff.

I have Clandestino. It's not bad, but becomes repetitive. I give it a blast now and again.

Manu Chao is great live. Perfect act for a summer festival. I was lucky to see him at Oxegen 06 and we were skanking to him while high on weed
