he man who gave us an irresistible summer hit in 2000 with Bongo Bong (and gave the soundtrack to the Madonna film The Next Big Thing a real highlight) is back with the first live album of his solo career. In the meantime, Manu Chao has played around 100 gigs all over the globe with his ten-piece touring band Radio Bemba Sound System. From Marseille to Tokyo and from Los Angeles to Moscow -- everywhere the colorful troupe brought the halls to a boil with their multicultural musical ratatouille.

In September 2001, Manu Chao, formerly head and bobble hat of the group Mano Negra, then performed live in Paris and let the tape run along. In the Grande Halle de la Vilette, pieces from the two solo albums were on the program that evening. For example, the ska song Welcome To Tijuana and the reggae number El Viento from the debut Clandestino were played. And with Mr. Bobby, a tribute to Bob Marley, a highlight of the second solo CD Proxima Estacion: Esperanca was also represented. In addition, Oscar Tramor (his real name) interpreted several Mano Negra classics in groovy stage versions. For example, Machine Gun (Casa Babylon) and Peligro (America Perdida).

Stylistically, the convinced citizen of the world and globetrotter with a passion continues his journey of exploration through the music forms of all continents. Latin rock (Por Donde Saldra El Sol?), punk (Mala Vida), rap (The Monkey), flamenco rumba (Rumba de Barcelona) -- he mixes all this and much more into a cross-genre and cross-border cross-culture mix. It doesn't get more international than this! --Harald Kepler
