Manu Chao Radio Bemba Sound System on Import 2LP + CD

A musical globalista with a rebel rock 'n' roll heart, there's nobody quite like Manu Chao. Multilingual and multicultural, Manu has been called the natural heir to Joe Strummer and Bob Marley and serves as an inspiration to the world's downtrodden and dispossessed. A huge star in Latin America and elsewhere, he draws audiences in excess of 100,000 strong around the globe. 

After three years of touring and over 120 concerts on three continents in front of millions of fans, Manu Chao and his group, the Radio Bemba Sound System, released this, their first live record in 2002. The album includes remixed titles from Manu Chao's first two solo records, as well as unreleased titles and covers of songs originally recorded by his previous band Mano Negra. The result: 29 songs and 70 minutes of relentless rowdiness recorded live at the Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris, on September 3-4, 2001.

In the spirit of Proxima Estacion: Esperanza, the 29 songs were played consecutively, melded into another following the rules of sampling initiated in Clandestino and perfected in Proxima Estacion: Esperanza. To produce this record, Manu Chao worked with Renaud Letang, already his partner on Clandestino and Proxima Estacion. With unaltered sound recordings and crammed to the gills, this live album is very intense, with an authentic sound mixed without restraint or pretension.

With his wandering, witty Latin ways, the South American in Manu Chao knows how to rouse the senses (with "Minha Galera") and play on tenderness before erupting into frenzied ska, Mano Negra-style, and wild pogo dancing. Punk rocker perhaps, but also undying admirer of reggae music, its values, its swaying tempo, its heroes - as witnessed by the song "Mr. Bobby." Manu blends everything together as he pleases: his own previously released songs, adding a text here, a rhythm there, inserting an extra whirlwind of electronic sounds ("Radio Bemba") and bits of blurriness. 

"One of the most important musicians in the world." - Chris Blackwell (Founder of Island Records)
