In Latin America and Europe, this guy is virtually an icon who seems to have taken the role of Bob Marley. Manu Chao is a wandering artist who for years never had his own place, staying forever on the move, as though addicted to the travel itself. He was born in Paris to Spanish parents, growing up to the sound bolero at home and rock'n'roll in the streets.

 

It is now two decades since Manu Chao released his higly popular 'Clandestino' album. At the cross-fade of the millennium, it sounded perfect: a mix of simple acoustic sound and bare vocals, underlined by the clear message to all minority groups in the darkest parts of European and South American reality.
